Battle of Britain (1/12)

List item

In July of the year 1940, Nazi Germany’s air force, known as the Luftwaffe, launched a massive bombing campaign on the United Kingdom. In response, the Royal Air Force took to the skies to defend the UK in what is now recognized as the first major military battle fought entirely by air forces. At one point in the campaign, the Luftwaffe was able to draw the entire Royal Air Force into the sky at once in defense of London and the south west UK. The Luftwaffe attacked the United Kingdom relentlessly day and night for several months, but in the end they could not match the superior firepower of the Royal Air Force. The Battle of Britain was the first major defeat of Nazi Germany’s armed forces and became a turning point in the war.
