Battle of Britain - Len DeightonJonathan Cape, 1980, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good - in Very Good DJ. Bruised at head of spine with commensurate ruffling to the DJ.
In a series of vivid ‘snapshots’, the author shows the reality of the most crucial battle of the Second World War as it was enacted in flesh and blood by those on both sides who participated in the air, on the ground, in the planning rooms and in the homes. Among the extraordinary photographs assembled are many from private collections that have never been seen in print before. New and contemporary drawings, diagrams, charts and maps make instantly clear what was happening day by day on both sides and m the accompanying text Len Deighton uses the words of witnesses and combatants to evoke a few weeks of desperate human endeavour and shows how the delicate balance was tipped – but only just – in Britain’s favour.
