From the Jacket

The air war waged by the Luftwaffe against the RAF in the summer and autumn of 1940 was the key event of World War II. If it had been lost, Hitler would have added the British Isles to his portfolio of subject nations. It was Churchill who coined the phrase 'Battle of Britain' to underscore the peril facing the nation and prepare it for the 'total war' that Hitler was about to unleash. During the campaign the British people were, in Winston Churchill's immortal words, 'sustained by unconquerable will-power'.
