The Battle of Britain commenced at the beginning of June 1940, and for the next two and a half gruelling months the young men of RAF Fighter Command duelled with the cream of Goering’s Luftwaffe over the skies of southern England. It was to become the greatest aerial conflict in aviation history.

Always outnumbered, the valiant young pilots fought with a determined fierceness and intensity, and never once did their spirit waver. By the end of September the battle was won, but many had made the ultimate sacrifice.

Robert Taylor – the world’s number one aviation artist has produced a superb pencil drawing with FIFTY BATTLE OF BRITAIN signatures this release is without doubt the most highly signed edition from Robert Taylor and in this day and age may never be surpassed!
