Battle of Britain

The Battle of Britain, a series of aerial engagements fought from July 10 to October 31, 1940, for control of the skies over the English Channel and Great Britain during World War II, resulted in a victory for the British Royal Air Force (RAF) and thwarted Hitler’s plan for an amphibious invasion of the British Isles. Reichsmarschall Hermann Göring had assured Hitler that his Luftwaffe could gain control of the air and protect the German invasion force; however, the Luftwaffe sustained heavy losses and failed to eliminate the RAF. The Battle of Britain was a turning point in World War II in the West.
