Hey! This Happened Today. Who Knew?

As Hitler's armies and air force tumbled European Countries like dominoes for the Third Reich to plunder; one tiny island Country stood against 3 months of constant bombardment. Known as The Battle Of Britain, Allied and Axis planes met in aerial combat in the skies over the South Coast. Prime Minister Winston Churchill paid tribute to the British Royal Air Force and Canadian and US Volunteer Airmen on this day, August 20, 1940, with this incredible speech:

"Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few."
