What happen at the battle of Britain?

The battle of Britain is a name given to the aerial battle in the skies of Britain (mainly south east England), which took place from 10th July to 31st August 1940, between the Royal Air Force and the Luftwaffe. The name came about after a speech given by the Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, who after the fall of France said: "The Battle of France is over. I expect the Battle of Britain is about to begin." During the Battle of Britain, the Luftwaffe, commanded by Herman Göring, attempted to gain air supremacy over Britain as a precursor to a German invasion of Britain (Operation Sea Lion). Initially German air raids on RAF airfields were successful at wearing down RAF Fighter Command, with planes and pilots being pushed to their limits to repel the Luftwaffe. However a change of targets from 7th August onwards, away from the beleaguered airfields to towns and cities, especially London (the Blitz), gave the RAF the time to recover and gain the upper hand and defeat the Luftwaffe. Ultimately, the Luftwaffe's losses at the Battle of Britain weakened the Luftwaffe to such a degree that it would never recover. The Battle of Britain was Hitler's first defeat and led to Hitler's invasion plans of Britain being abandoned. See links for more information.
