The Nazi Germany set out to destroy the RAF so as to have a clean passage through the Channel to invade England as it had done with France and Spain but the RAF valiantly held off the German attack over the summer of 1940. The battle of Britain lasted three and half months with nearly a thousand planes lost – Spitfires and Hurricanes – but with a decisive victory for the RAF.
