June 1940: The Third Reich is preparing to initiate Operation Adlerangriff (Eagle attack), the cross-Channel invasion of England from France. But since 1066, no foreign power had ever breached the shores of the British Isles.
Britain stood alone in Europe. It was the nation’s "darkest hour" - and had it not been for the determination and fighting spirit of its people, Prime Minister Winston Churchill, and the RAF, the Battle of Britain would have been lost and the fate of "all Christian Civilisation" put at risk.
Nazi Germany’s failure to destroy Britain's air defences or to break British morale is considered Hitler's first major setback of World War II, and the "end of the beginning". Thanks to this key victory, the Allies were able to use it for the rest of the war as a giant air and troop base. Along with more than 1,600,000 personnel, the United States poured in some 200,000 bombers and fighters, which fought with the RAF to defeat the Axis powers.
Roughly the size of Switzerland, our map of southeastern England and northeastern France includes historical airfields, urban areas, roads and railways, ports and other features that make it the perfect setting for the war in Europe between 1940 and 1945. This highly-detailed map also provides a wonderful opportunity to deploy massed combined arms assets, re-enact epic air battles and enjoy complex and kinetic ground operations for the first time in DCS World.
