Book Details

Volume THIRTEN in this major series on the Battle of Britain

Red Kite are delighted to introduce a major new landmark series of books on the Battle of Britain. The Battle of Britain Combat Archive Series forms the most comprehensive account ever of The Few’s gallant efforts. Focusing solely on RAF Fighter Command’s clashes with the Luftwaffe, the series covers every combat that took place on every day of the Battle of Britain. Using contemporary accounts such as combat reports, rarely seen squadron intelligence summaries and the newly released casualty reports, the author and his team of experts have broken down each day into its individual combats and assembled the claims, losses and first-hand accounts into a highly accessible format. These combats are illustrated with specially designed maps showing the amount of aircraft involved, the area that the engagement took place and the location of where the casualties came to earth. Each combat and casualty report is illustrated with a photo of the pilot wherever possible.

Volume Thirteen covers 12-15 September, widely regarded as the climax of the Battle of Britain, with 15 September in-particular being a monumental day when RAF squadrons claimed record amounts of victories over the Luftwaffe. But what really happened, and was this day as significant as it has been portrayed? This volume provides the reader with all of the information needed to make up their own minds in another extended, 144 page edition.

Volume Thirteen contains:

Over 100 original wartime photos
6 combat maps
2 Specially commissioned combat scenes by Piotr Forkasiewicz, one of the world’s leading digital aviation artists.
144 pages.
A4 format and printed full colour throughout
