Battles and Banter: A Relaxed Military History Podcast


Nov 14, 2020

Hello again, everybody! On this episode of Battles & Banter, Avery & Tony pine for an absent Codie but keep the ship level nonetheless by tackling the Battle of Britain, which was fought from July 10th to October 31st, 1940. 80 years ago, the skies over Great Britain were a battleground between the British Royal Air Force and the German Luftwaffe. The battle would mark a significant turning point for the Allied forces as the British held their own against the might of the German war machine. However, the battle also marked the beginning of 'The Blitz', which was the devastating bombing of London & other civilian targets by the Germans. Avery & Tony highlight the layout of the fight, and talk the pros & cons of both the British defense and German attack. They also talk A LOT about planes so hang in there. Enjoy!
