5.0 out of 5 stars Remembering the Few, 5 Aug 2002
This review is from: The Hardest Day: Battle of Britain, 18 August 1940 (Cassell Military Paperbacks) (Paperback)
I first read this book in 1993. Mr Price took a big chance writing this book. However, he totally convinced me with his meticulous attention to detail that the 18 August 1940 was the turning point of the Battle of Britain. Using accounts from the time, and veterans who spoke of their experiences, Alfred Price turned out a classic book. He will put you in the cockpit of a Spitfire or Messerschmitt, the gunner's position of a Dornier 17, or the RAF personnel on the ground. You will learn to experience what it was like to be in the middle of those terrible raids on the RAF stations of Southern England. It is also an hour by hour account of that Sunday in 1940. You will also see how, no matter what the Germans did, the Battle of Britain would have been won by the few from Fighter Command even if Goering had not changed his strategy and started bombing London. This is a definitive account of a day in 1940 that changed the course of WWII. If you want to know about this momentous battle you should read this book.
