In 1940, the skies over Britain were full of dogfighting aircraft as young pilots of the RAF fought to repel the might of the German war machine. Described by Prime Minister Winston Churchill as ‘Their finest hour’, the Battle of Britain is a defining moment in recent history and remains an inspiration to us all. Victory 1940 presents a pictorial chronology of the legendary fight, when the Luftwaffe was defeated for the first time, by Churchill’s few.

The history of the battle has been recounted many times, but this book offers a new approach, through razor-sharp contemporary imagery of restored Battle of Britain warbirds, combined with extensive archive material that is previously unpublished. Victory 1940 draws from John Dibbs’ Battle of Britain restored image archive and other personal collections made available especially for the book. These unique illustrations are supported by a riveting account of the greatest air battle of all time, as seen through the eyes of the combatants from both sides. We witness their triumphs and tragedies as they battle for a cause and survival.
