The Most Dangerous Enemy

Most Dangerous Enemy Illustrated
A History of the Battle of Britain

“Simply the best book about the Battle of Britain ever written”
The Battle of Britain is one of the most celebrated events of the Second World War, and the literature about it is enormous. When The Most Dangerous Enemy appeared in 2000, it offered a fundamentally new view of the events of sixty years before and has now become the standard work on the subject.

Readers’ Comments

“Of the many books that are out there about that Summer of 1940, this one soars effortlessly above them

“A book I simply could not put down.”

“The best history of the most important air battle, ever.”

“The final chapter is the most moving chapter of history I have ever read.”

“Yes, simply the best book about the Battle of Britain ever written.”

“This challenges myths about the Battle of Britain, pointing out that the Luftwaffe wasn’t the mighty weapon that Britain made out. It’s a great subject that many others have written about but he has gone back to primary sources and emerged with a fascinating, new story. Very impressive.”

“A must for the business leader’s bookshelf”

This is not the story of the British versus the Germans and Italians, nor the story of Rommel versus Montgomery, nor even the story of Montgomery versus Auchinleck. It is the story of a joint venture between a high performance organisation (the Afrika Korps) and a low performance organisation (the Italian Army) confronted by a mediocre organisation (the 8th Army). The mediocre organisation raised its game - and won. Find out how it did it.
