The following article was written many years ago by a young history teacher, Nick Tallentire, and his friend and artist, D.C. Penny.

Mr. Tallentire collaborated with his friend, D.C. Penny, to create this fascinating, illustrated narrative of the Battle of Britain,  presented exclusivly in these web pages. This is the story of England's great WW2 air battle and provides us a comprehensive view of those crucial months interleaved with original captioned drawings.

The piece was scanned from Nick's original manuscript and made into an Adobe PDF, so one must have Adobe Acrobat Reader  installed. It may be a bit difficult to read in a few places, however that does not detract in any way from this outstanding account.
