Product description


'...a definitive history of the Battle, now presented in fully-illustrated large format. Stephen Bungay describes the gripping human story, along with contemporary photographs of planes, pilots, and military and political leaders of both sides...and many other fascinating elements.'
-- Best Of British Magazine, July

'...one of the most comprehensive accounts of the battle yet published.'
-- Britain at War, September, 2010

About the Author

STEPHEN BUNGAY was born in Kent in 1954 and educated at Oxford and Tübingen. He has spent his career working for the Boston Consulting Group in London and Munich as a chief executive in an insurance company. He is now working in executive education, specialising in military history and modern management practice. His first book, The Most Dangerous Enemy: A History of the Battle of Britain, published by Aurum in 2001 has now become accepted as the definitive book on the subject.

His subsequent book, Alamein, also published by Aurum, was praised by Lawrence James in the Daily Mail as ‘a brilliant balance between lucid analysis and piquant detail’, and by John Lukacs in the Los Angeles Times as ‘terse and brilliantly written by a thorough master of his subject’.

He regularly appears on TV documentaries about the Second World War. He lives in Kent.
