Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Most Dangerous Enemy: A History of the Battle of Britain (Paperback)
I was conducting research into the Battle of Briatin, and this title seemed to have excellent reviews, so I purchased it. What a good decision! Ever since I have started reading it, I struggle to put it down. Whether you are researching the Battle of Britain for a school or university assignment, or for your own pleasure, this is the book for you. It is a comprehensive insight into the air battle with everything you could possibly need to know.
It begins with an background section, where you learn the histories of all the key figures involved such as Dowding and Sperrle, as well as why the air battle was to be crucial. Instantly many of the popular myths are dispelled and a bizarre truth unveiled.
The rest of the book gives a detailed account of the Battle itself with in depth analysis. There are also photographs and illustrations to further enhance your understanding, as well as quotes from diaries of many of the key figures and interviews with survivors. The author has obviously done ample study, including a flight in a Spitfire so he can accurately descripe the feeling!
This is by far the best non-fiction book I have ever read, and would recommend it to anyone. In particular, students studying the B o B for their A-level history course or at university because it includes a full bibliography and source list!
