Hitler’s forces appeared to be invincible, having swept through Poland, Belgium, the Netherlands, and France. Invasion seemed inevitable as the Führer’s eyes turned to Britain, isolated against the might of fascism. Spitfire Summer is the story of that extraordinary time: packed full of unique material and first-hand accounts from the archives of the Imperial War Museum, it tells of the men and women who won the Battle of Britain in that fateful summer, at home and in the air.
