This is an excellent history of the Battle of Britain. In addition to descriptions of the air combat, Holland also provides insight into the command and control structures, the manufacturing and repair of aircraft, the morale of the flyers, and more; this is a well-rounded history. In addition, he puts it into the context of the naval war, and at the beginning of the book, the ground war in France. I would have liked a bit more of a summing-up at the end, but we all know how the Battle of Britain turned out anyway, so that's not a big issue. Highly recommended!
