This website offers a different perspective on the Battle of Britain, based upon research and writing about propaganda, but also the way in which the Battle has evolved as a major event in British history since it was fought in 1940. Whilst there has been a significant historical focus upon the day-to-day air battles, aircraft, losses, pilots and commanders, there has been less attention to how the Battle as it is understood today, evolved through both official and popular efforts to valorise and commemorate it.
A work in progress, new sections will be added periodically.
