Best Answer

The reference to 'soldiers' in the question suggests that this was a land battle. However, the Battle of Britain (July-October, 1940) was fought entirely in the skies over southern England. The German Luftwaffe (air force) tried to secure air superiority for the planned invasion. The main target was the RAF air bases in England. By mid September 1940 the attempt to destroy the RAF had failed and a new battle - the 'Blitz' - had begun. (It's standard practice to draw a distinction between the two). In the Battle of Britain the actual number of airmen involved was very small. The RAF lost 498 men dead. From 7 September 1940 onwards the Luftwaffe deliberately targeted the civilian population and the number of dead (mainly civilians) rose very sharply. Joncey
