In September 1940 the Nazi march over Europe was halted when the brave “few” of the RAF defeated the German Luftwaffe in the skies above Britain. The RAF’s victory in the Battle of Britain was a turning-point in the Second World War, fatally weakening Germany’s airforce, dealing a psychological blow to Hitler and laying the groundwork for the Allies’ return to France on D-Day 4 years later.
But what if Britain had lost in 1940? In the first episode of a new series, historians and experts will explore what might have happened if history had turned out differently. What were the Nazis’ secret plans to invade Britain? Would Churchill have gone down fighting? Could Britain have struck a peace deal with Hitler?
