The Battle of Britain was a fierce airborne engagement which occurred entirely within the airspace of southern Britain. While it was ultimately a victory for Britain, the losses suffered by both sides were extremely costly. In total, around two thousand men were killed on both sides, and both also lost roughly two thousand aircraft. British civilian casualties mounted to over twenty thousand as a result of Germany’s night-bombing operations, which would become infamously known as the Blitz.
