The Battle from below

BBC History Magazine, September 2010

I haven't seen it yet but the September 2010 issue of BBC History Magazine (out now in the UK, probably in a couple of months in Australia) should have an article of mine in it. It's not quite the cover story but is one of several articles on the Battle of Britain. Mine looks at how British civilians at the time perceived the Battle -- meaning not just the daylight operations but the start of the Blitz and the threat of seaborne invasion. It's the first time I've been commissioned to write on a particular topic and I quite enjoyed the experience. Hopefully readers of BBC History Magazine will enjoy reading the result!
