Start of Battle of Britain

10th July 1940

The Battle of Britain was the first major campaign to be fought entirely by air forces, and was also the largest and most sustained aerial bombing campaign to that date.

Beginning with Channel Battles on 10 July, the Luftwaffe moved on to attacking RAF defences, airfields and ports.
