The Battle of Britain online Talk

A talk by Richard Marks

In 1940, Britain stood alone following the fall of France. With the German army poised across the channel, only the RAF could prevent the Luftwaffe from gaining the air supremacy needed to successfully mount the expected invasion. Historian Richard Marks, will look at how the Royal Air Force’s systems and equipment allowed them to retain supremacy in the air over southern England, in 1940, and prevent the invasion.
