Hitler's War: The Battle Of Britain - 320x240/3gp/AAC

In June, 1940, England stood alone against brutal aggression. The Germans had yet to be stopped in their lightning thrust across Europe - their next target was Britain.

Hitler was frustrated by Britain's refusal to make a settlement with him. He had no great desire to wage war against Britain and her empire, but nor was he shy of smashing both if they stood in his way. His plan was to use his air force, the threat of invasion, and an actual invasion if necessary and possible, to force Britain to capitulate. From early July the Luftwaffe (the German air force) was ordered to mount offensive operations against Britain.

The Battle of Britain was the first major failure of the Germans in World War II, and it thwarted Hitler's plan to force Britain to accept peace or face invasion.
