LOW LEVEL ENCOUNTER
The Battle of Britain was a momumental event in British history and a major turning point of WWII. During the summer months of 1940 the RAF and Luftwaffe fought what was to become the most crucial and decisive aerial conflict in history. Never before or since has air combat been so intensive over such a period of time.
This superb edition by Gerald captures the feeling of intense speed at a moment of heavy combat during September 1940. A Spitfire and an Bf109 are locked in close combat chasing each other down to just a few hundred feet, both at full throttle. A downed Heinkel He111 lies in the corn field below whilst high above them the vapour trails of combat weave through the summer sky as the battle rages on.
