Category Aviation Books, Subcategory WW2 UK, ISBN/Box 9781906592509, Publisher/Brand Red Kite, Author Simon W. Parry, Format a4, No. Pages 144, Version Soft cover, Language English

Red Kite are delighted to introduce a major new landmark series of books on the Battle of Britain. The Battle of Britain Combat Archive Series forms 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. >Volume Seven covers 26th – 29th August as the Battle intensified and the Luftwaffe started to gain the upper hand. This intense period saw the loss of several experienced RAF pilots and the final swansong of the Boulton Paul Defiant in the Battle. This volume is shorter than usual, (104 pages), as we will combine the huge days of 30th and 31st August into Volume 8, taking us nicely to the half way point of the Battle and the beginning of September for Volume 9.
Volume Seven contains:
Over 100 original wartime photos
Approx 16 combat maps
4 Specially commissioned combat scenes by Piotr Forkasiewicz, one of the world's leading digital aviation artists.
4 new colour profiles
104 pages.
A4 format and printed full colour throughout
