UK Jonathan Cape Ltd 1977 0224014226 / 9780224014229 2nd Edition Hardcover Very Good Good Book 8vo - over 7 - 9 
For the first time the battle of Britain is described as much from the German as from the British point of view. Continuing the research that made Bomber a bestseller. Deighton tells the intimate story of the men who developed radar,designed the high-speed monoplanes, fought each other in the skies and those in command who engaged in vicious vendetta. For people brought up to believe the mythology created by wartime propaganda, reading this sobering account of the battle will come as a shock. There is a bump to the base of the spine. The spine on the DJ is faded with a little creasing to the edges and flaps.
