Overview

In July 1940, England stood alone, with only the Royal Air Force to defend her against the German Luftwaffe. But even as the nation fought, John Dowding, mastermind of the RAF's winning strategy, underwent a personal struggle against his rivals in the Air Ministry. In October of that year, he was dismissed. Why? This engrossing behind-the-scenes look contrasts the battles in the corridors of power with the dramatic war in the air—revealing the full truth behind the Battle of Britain.
