In The Trenches

I cannot imagine what it must have been like to have been on the front lines during either of the World Wars. I cannot imagine what it must have been like to have simply lived during that time for that matter.

The ‘Battle of Britain’ in 1940, when the German and British air forces battled it out in the skies, was a significant turning point in World War II. The Royal Air Force, despite having their air bases and military posts targeted for months by Germany’s Luftwaffe, gained control of the skies; which was a decisive victory for Britain. Saving the country from ground invasion and possible occupation of German forces; they proved that air battle alone could win a major war.

Hence on August 20, 1940 Winston Churchill said “Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few”; never was a truer word spoken.
