The Battle of Britain happened between July 10, 1940 and October 31, 1940. It was a critical event in WW2 which stalled the German advance and conquest/invasion of Britain. It was fought in the air and was a battle for air supremacy to pave the way for the German invasion as, without having the sky cleared of British planes, the Germans could not successfully move troops onto British soil because the RAF would bomb them as they tried to land.

The summer of 1940, with the culmination around September 15th.

The RCAF also started to do "intruder missions" near the German airfields in France. These were night fighters who would attack the Germans as they were trying to land at their own Lufftwaffe bases, at the end of a night flight.

By the middle of September, 1941, the Germans had decided it was too late in the year to launch a invasion, so they reduced their air raids to a minimum.

The Battle Of Britain was significant as it was the first WW2 battle that was entirely fought in the sky.
