Finest hour : the battle of Britain by Tim Clayton( Book )
8 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and held by 1,084 libraries worldwide
Sixty years ago, Europe lay at the feet of Adolf Hitler. Standing between Hitler and world domination was the just-appointed Prime Minister Winston Churchill and a few hundred pilots in the Royal Air Force's Fighter Command. Defeat seemed inevitable. Instead, a legend was born. Taking its readers on a breathtaking journey from open lifeboats in North Atlantic gales to the cockpits of burning fighter planes, Finest Hour re-creates the tensions and uncertainties of the events of 1940 -- months when the fate of the world truly hung in the balance. It is a powerful account, told through the voices, diaries, letters, and memoirs of the men and women who lived and loved, fought and died, during that terrible yet ultimately triumphant year. The personal stories of these soldiers and airmen, diplomats and politicians, journalists and spies, are combined with a fresh and often controversial account of the swirling political intrigues and betrayals of the period. A testament to a year when a nation's darkest hour became its finest, Finest Hour is a singular achievement and an indispensable contribution to the literature of World War II. - Publisher

Finest hour by Tim Clayton( Book )
15 editions published between 1999 and 2011 in English and held by 454 libraries worldwide
Værket er fremkommet som forskningen bag fire timers BBC dokumentarserie om operationerne i 1940, der gav den engelske ledelse et noget større chok end hvad der senere er beskrevet. Hæren både mindre professionel og slået; dens udstyr tillige gået tabt. Royal Navy ubestridt suveræn både i størrelse og mandskabs kvalitet og Royal Airforce var lige akkurat i stand til at opstille et varigt defensivt luftforsvar. Værket behandler således både den øverste krigsledelse og det operative niveaus opgaver og problemer

200 years ago, Napoleon dominated Europe and threatened Britain with invasion. Against him stood the Royal Navy and the already legendary Admiral Horatio Nelson. On 21 October 1805 a massive naval battle off Cape Trafalgar on the coast of Spain decided mastery of the seas. Over the following days and nights, the battleships and their exhausted crews endured a gale of awesome fury. English, American, Irish, Spanish and French seamen fought in the most confused and bloody naval conflict that any had known. The demands of life at sea - and what this extraordinary mix of people had suffered and achieved in the turbulent years that led up to the battle - make compelling reading
