About Garry Campion
Garry's interest in the Battle of Britain began as a child on a front-line RAF base in Germany during the Cold War. A lifelong enthusiasm, Garry has since published two academic books with Palgrave Macmillan on aspects of the Battle, and a third is currently being written. He has presented conference papers on his research, reviews books for academic journals, and provides comment on proposed books and articles.
During this 75th anniversary year of the Battle of Britain, Garry gave the afternoon keynote presentation at the RAF Museum’s ‘A Necessary Victory?’ conference in September 2015. An excellent range of papers confirmed a continuing fascination with the Battle, the programme can be found here.
