Battle of Britain Combat Archive Vol 03

Release of 3/09/2016
Author: Simon W. PARRY
Edition: Wing Leader
ISBN : 978-1-906592-32-5

This Volume covers the period from 9 – 13 August 1940 when the fighting grew to a new level with the spectacular combat over Portland on 11 August which saw nearly 30 aircraft shot down over Weymouth Bay and then the launch of Eagle Day on 13th August.

Volume Three contains:
- Over 200 original wartime photos
- Approx 25 combat maps
- 7 Specially commissioned combat scenes by Piotr Forkasiewicz, one of the world’s leading digital aviation artists.
- 16 new colour profiles

Standard volumes are 128 pages, but because of the amount of action that took place on these few days, we’ve extended Volume Three to 160 pages.

The Battle of Britain Combat Archive Series will form the most comprehensive account ever of The Few’s gallant efforts. Focusing solely on RAF Fighter Command’s clashes with the Luftwaffe, the series covers every combat that took place on every day of the Battle of Britain. Using contemporary accounts such as combat reports, rarely seen squadron intelligence summaries and the newly released casualty reports, the author and his team of experts have broken down each day into its individual combats and assembled the claims, losses and first-hand accounts into a highly accessible format. These combats are illustrated with specially designed maps showing the amount of aircraft involved, the area that the engagement took place and the location of where the casualties came to earth. Each combat and casualty report is illustrated with a photo of the pilot wherever possible.
