"Early in WWII, during the summer of 1940, only the outmatched RAF appeared to stand in the way of Hitler's conquest of Europe. But the well-laid German plans snagged on dogged English opposition and the Battle of Britain raged for 114 days. Battlefield Detectives analyses the vast arena of this epic face-off, which encompassed the skies across the English Channel and over the countryside of southeast Britain. Churchill said "never was so much owed by so many to so few." For sixty years, the common view of the Battle of Britain has been of an unprepared nation winning against overwhelming odds, a tale of desperate heroism, of a handful of plucky pilots lucking into a world-saving victory. In this episode of Battlefield Detectives, scientists, historians and veterans reveal that in fact Britain was far from unprepared." -- Publisher's web site.
