Photos, wartime posters and drawings, and even a pilot's handwritten diary -- mostly culled from the Imperial War Museum's vast archives -- makes this one of the most attractive illustrated treatments to appear. The brief, authoritative text is a match for the graphics.
Aviation History (November 2010)
Moore does a remarkable job of telling the story of not just the Battle itself -- understandably concentrating on the most intense days -- but also the events leading up to it ... Not only that, but she writes with style and some verve.

Offer[s] a lavish display packed with modern art, photos, propaganda posters, and first-hand accounts. Any collection strong in British military history must have this!
The Midwest Book Review
Appropriately released in time for the 70th anniversary of the onslaught, the book provides not only the history of the BoB, but also an analysis of events from both sides of the conflict. In here you'll find the aircraft, the airmen, the commanders, and other personalities with the RAF and the Luftwaffe. It is a superbly written book that brings everything to life. It is a book that I can easily recommend to you as one that you'll be going to over and over again.
Scott Van Aken, Modeling Madness
...this solid offering provides background and perspective (and pictures) from both sides of the battle, all laced with apposite first-person memories.
