The Battle of Britain [9780312675004]

  • Had Britain's defenses collapsed, Hitler would have dominated all of Europe and been able to turn his full attention east to the Soviet Union. The German invasion of France and the Low Countries in May 1940 was unlike any the world had ever seen. It hit with a force and aggression that no one could counteruand in just a few short weeks. All in their way crumbled under the force of the Nazi hammer blow. With France facing defeat and with British forces pressed back to the Channel, there were few who believed Britain could possibly survive. Soon, it seemed, Hitler would have all of Europe at his feet. Yet Hitler's forces were not quite the Goliath they at first appeared to be and Germany's leadership lacked the single-minded purpose, vision, and directionthat had led to such success on land. Nor was Britain any David. Thanks to a sophisticated defensive system and the combined efforts of the Royal Air Force and Royal Navy as well as the mounting sense of collective defiance led by a new prime minister, Britain was not ready to give in to the Nazi onslaught. --
