Following its original publication in narrative form ten years ago, Stephen Bungay’s The Most Dangerous Enemy has been acclaimed as the definitive history of the Battle of Britain, a book whose authority and comprehensiveness far exceeded all previous accounts. Andrew Roberts, prominent military historian and author of Masters and Commanders: How Four Titans Won the War in the West, 1941-1945, said that The Most Dangerous Enemy is “the best single-volume history to be published in over a decade.” To commemorate the 70th Anniversary of the Battle, this classic work has been transformed into a new, large-format, fully illustrated edition. With over 150 photographs (including rare color photos), full color maps, and diagrams, and numerous sidebar features, it brings this dramatic story to life in a fresh and exciting way. Archival photographs of the planes, pilots, and key military leaders, many of which have never before been published, are accompanied by fascinating three-dimensional diagrams illustrating dogfights and battle tactics on both sides. This new edition of The Most Dangerous Enemy is a fitting way to mark the Battle of Britain’s anniversary and will bring this most remarkable of stories to a whole new group of readers.
