Duel in the Dark By Peter Townsend AudioBook summary
Adolf Hitler’s plan to eliminate Britain from WWII early using the destructive might of the Luftwaffe was thwarted by defeat in the Battle of Britain in 1940.
Still determined to force the British to surrender, Hitler launched a relentless night bombing offensive whose objective was to bomb Winston Churchill and his people into submission.
But he reckoned without the formidable courage and fighting spirit of the nation he was trying to conquer . . .
In Duel in the Dark Peter Townsend blends his own experiences of night fighting in the air war over Britain with stories from ordinary Londoners living with the terror of the Blitz to form an epic account of a country desperately defending itself against a mighty enemy.
