Opis produktu:

For three months in the summer and autumn of 1940 a battle took place in the skies over Britain that has come to symbolise the character and destiny of the nation. No other episode in the country's recent history has captured the imagination in quite the same way, nor given rise to so many myths, controversies and arguments. The Most Dangerous Enemy was acclaimed as the definitive history of the Battle of Britain right from its 2000 publication, its authority and comprehensiveness far exceeding all previous accounts. Whether assessing the development of radar, the relative merits of the Spitfire, Hurricane or Messerschmitt, or the crucial role played by Fighter Command's Keith Park, this book uncovers the truth behind the myths. To commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Battle, Aurum presents a large-format, fully illustrated edition of this classic work. Over 150 contemporary photographs of the planes, pilots, and military and political leaders of both sides are accompanied by battleground maps, tactics diagrams, combat reports, satirical cartoons from the period and many other fascinating artefacts. In addition there are numerous box features with biographical sketches, anecdotes and statistics, helping to paint one of the most comprehensive pictures of the Battle of Britain ever attempted. This is not only an essential work for the military scholar but is a gripping human story which will appeal to anyone who has even a passing interest in this most famous of battles. Stephen Bungay is a renowned military historian, management consultant, teacher and author. In 2004 he featured in the Channel 4 series about the Battle of Britain, Spitfire Ace. His other books include Alamein, also published by Aurum, which was praised by Lawrence James in the Daily Mail as a brilliant balance between lucid analysis and piquant detail.' He lives in Kent.
