{detailed description}Published to mark the 60th anniversary of the Battle of Britain, this new history broadens and deepens our understanding of an event that passed instantly into legend. The Burning Blue, which assembles an international cast of authorities in the field, reviews the Battle from both the British and the German sides, drawing on the latest research by military historians in both countries; assesses the international significance of the Battle through the eyes of intelligence gatherers, officials and commentators in the United States, the Soviet Union and Japan; explores the way in which the Battle is remembered today by the airmen who took part in it; traces its legacy in British culture since 1940, as revealed in memoirs, fiction, films, memorials and the annual ceremonies of Battle of Britain Day; and pinpoints the significance of the Battle in the overall history of the Second World War. The Burning Blue brings together for the first time the facts, the legends, the memories and the judgement of historians in a panoramic re-assessment of one of the most famous battles of all time.
