Re: Battle of Britain Combat Archive 4: 14 August - 15 August 1940.

Hello!

I agree with Jim!

A very good book (and series) with lot of information on claims and losses (perhaps the best I've seen on the BoB). Also with lost of maps and combat reports.
However, what I lack is combat reports from the Luftwaffe and sources! Sources is perhaps the most problematic (not that I've found a lot of differences between the books and my own research) but it would have been nice to see where some of the claims comes from (i.e. logbooks, ORBs, other sources etc.).

In any case, highly recommended and I'm looking forward to the remaining eight books in the series.

Best wishes/Håkan
