    The Battle of Britain
    In the summer of 1940 the Luftwaffe locked horns with the RAF in a life - and - death struggle for mastery of the skies over southern England. Success for Germany would knock Britain out of the war and give Adolf Hitler a free hand for his assault on the Soviet Union. Success for the RAF would bring an end to the German advance to the west and ultimately facilitate the D - Day landings four years in the future.<br/>Thus the fate of the Allied war effort lay in the hands of those whom Winston Churchill dubbed 'The Few'. What is less well known is that the second - largest foreign contingent in Fighter Command was drawn from the British Commonwealth's southernmost Dominions: New Zealand and Australia. One hundred and seventy - one Anzac airmen were thrust headlong into a ferocious air battle that would put their skills, resolve and character to the ultimate test. The tale of their place in the Battle of Britain, along with their personal stories, friendships, successes, losses and fears are told in detail for the first time in 'Dogfight'.<br/>ANZAC BATTLES SERIES<br/>Series Editor: Glyn Harper<br/>The Anzac Battles Series is a collection of books describing the great military battles fought by Australian and New Zealand soldiers during the wars of the twentieth century.
