Australia's Few and the Battle of Britain

 

Eight Australian pilots who flew the Battle of Britain -

Only one survived. During the summer and autumn of 1940, the Luftwaffe launched their campaign to gain superiority over the RAF, especially Fighter Command. The result was the first major battle of World War II (or any war) fought entirely in the air. The Luftwaffe's defeat by 'The Few' marked a turning point in the Allies' favour. The Battle of Britain is one of the most significant battles of the war, and until now, the role of the Australian 'Few' has received little attention.

Kristen Alexander gives a personal account of eight Australian's piloting  Spitfires and Hurricanes.
