The families of the R.A.F. servicemen killed flying Defiants believed that their husbands, brothers, and sons had died in vain, but the truth is that their vital contribution to battle of Dunkirk and the Battle of Britain has been erased from the official history. Robert Verkaik has uncovered new records, including top secret memos written by Hugh Dowding, the head of Fighter Command, combat reports, pilot logs, and recordings of the last interviews with Defiant crews, as well as traced the relatives of Defiant pilots, to tell the story of the Battle of Britain as it has never been told before.
