Battle of Britain Online Exhibition

Battle of Britain Online Exhibition

The Battle of Britain was a major air campaign fought over southern England in the summer and autumn of 1940. After the evacuation of the British Expeditionary Force from Dunkirk and the fall of France, Germany planned to gain air supremacy in preparation for an invasion of Great Britain.

The Luftwaffe began targeting airfields supporting industry, ports and infrastructure but Hitler became impatient with their lack of success and switched the bombing to cities and the civilian population, with London taking the brunt during The Blitz.

Our online exhibition explores the impact of the Battle of Britain on Hertfordshire's residents.
