The Beginning of the Fighter Offensive (Air Defence Great Britain 4)

This volume of RAF operational history begins at the end of the Battle of Britain. It describes how the lessons learned from that battle were applied to the organisation of the RAF and defence systems in the UK, and also gives much detail on German strategy. It continues the story of the air war after September 1940 (and see Battle of Britain - published by MLRS) until the end of 1941, looking at enemy attacks on shipping, the expansion of the British fighter force, and the formulation of the concept of offensive fighter operations and activities in this sphere up to the end of 1941. Essential reading for all air historians.
