The Battle of Britain Map

75 years ago in July 1940 the Luftwaffe began the Battle of Britain. This concerted air campaign, waged by the German Air Force against the United Kingdom, was an attempt by the German Air Force to assert authority over the Royal Air Force.

Batalla de Inglaterra is a comprehensive map of RAF and Luftwaffe bases in the summer of 1940. The map also includes the locations of radar stations and the maximum flight range of the German Messerschmitt 109 and the ranges of the RAF's radar coverage,

The RAF recently published the Battle of Britain Campaign Diaries, so the resources are there for anyone who wants to undertake the mammoth task of mapping the whole Battle of Britain campaign.
