1940. Britain stands alone against Nazi Germany. Only the RAF can protect Britain from falling to the Germans.
Scramble is the thrilling story of the epic battle that turned the tide of Nazi invasion in the summer of 1940.
In more than 450 first-hand accounts, combatants, civilians, politicians, journalists and others who were part of the day-to-day heroism that was England’s finest hour tell a tale of war from an individual perspective.
And what a revealing tale it is — of the shortages of every kind, with groundcrew racing against time to get the battered planes operational, to the tactical battles and controversies revealed by Air Ministry papers.
Above all, it evokes the terror, rage and frustration of Britain besieged, and the spirit which held it all together: the courage to live to fight another day.
