THEIR FINEST HOUR - With Exclusive Bookplate
There are few visual records of the dramatic encounters that took place over southern England during the summer of 1940 as Nazi Germany prepared to invade Britain. Their Finest Hour re-lives these historic events as the RAF, though outnumbered, repelled the might of Hitler’s war machine in one of the most important air battles ever fought.
This book is not simply a collection of artwork; first and foremost it is a historically accurate recollection of events, painstakingly researched with the assistance of leading historians. However, being illustrated by the world’s leading military and aviation artists rather than photographs makes it a totally unique account and very different to any others.
