The role of Fighter Command during the Battle of Britain is rightly widely known and lauded but the significant role played by Bomber Command in the defence of Great Britain in the summer of 1940 is largely overlooked and forgotten. Night after night, the bomber crews took to the skies and carried the fight to the enemy all across Europe. The great courage and achievements of The Many during this crucial part of the war should rank alongside those of The Few.’
