Description
From military mavericks, underwater warriors, and a swashbuckling sea wolf to daring raids, great escapes, and shocking defeats: these real-life stories capture every nuance of the world of war. Vividly written by the finest historians, and by those who survived those often-terrible times, each book offers a unique perspective on battle...and the courage that turns soldiers into heroes.

In July 1940, England stood alone, with only the Royal Air Force to defend her against the German Luftwaffe. But even as the nation fought, John Dowding, mastermind of the RAF's winning strategy, underwent a personal struggle against his rivals in the Air Ministry. In October of that year, he was dismissed. Why? This engrossing behind-the-scenes look contrasts the battles in the corridors of power with the dramatic war in the air -- revealing the full truth behind the Battle of Britain.
