: World War II was peppered with battles in the air. This book recreates ten of what the author considers to be the greatest of these battles. Each one has been chosen to provide as wide a variety of air forces and aircraft types as possible, and for the tactics involved and the particular significance. The author draws on archives of text and photographic material to provide a wealth of technical and background data. Accounts of battles recreated includes: the Blitzkrieg on Poland, the Battle of Britain, clashes for the Philippines and Guadalcanal, the struggle for Malta, the Marianas "turkey-shoot", tank-air engagements at Kursk and Mareth and the battles of attrition over Germany by night and day.
