THE MAKING OF THE BATTLE OF BRITAIN
This page will feature excerpts from (the late) Robert J. Rudhall's book "Battle of Britain - The Movie". Unfortunately the author has passed away and at least one (if not both) of his comprehensive books on the movie will never be reprinted because the files have been somehow lost. In order to keep this fascinating information from being lost to the aviation community forever, I will reprint parts of the books here. Note that I make no money on this website, it is strictly for information purposes only (as a matter of fact I actually lose money, as I have to pay web server fees out of my own pocket with no recompense).
Just click on the links below to read parts of the book....
