This limited Edition Gift set features the 2 disc special edition of The Battle of Britain with the book by Stephen Bungay entitled The Most Dangerous Enemy: A History Of The Battle Of Britain and a specialised colour picture print. Battle Of Britain (Dir. Guy Hamilton) (1969):This is a spectacular retelling of a true story that shows courage at its inspiring best. Few defining moments can change the outcome of war; but when the outnumbered Royal Air Force defied unsurmountable odds in engaging the German Luftwaffe they may well have altered the course of history! The Most Dangerous Enemy: A History Of The Battle Of Britain (Stephen Bungay): This history of the Battle of Britain provides an encyclopaedic academic rigour: the author went back to original sources both in the Public Record Office and the German archives. Challenging virtually every time-honoured myth and assumption about Britain's victory the book questions the traditional myth of an amateurish honourable British ""Few"" up against a pitiless and regimented German war machine. It actually asserts exactly the opposite: that it was Britain's pilots who were the ruthless combatants and its aircraft production that was the well-oiled machine and the Germans who never quite recovered from their amateurish underestimation of their ""most dangerous enemy"".
