The Battle of Britain was one of the most harrowing episodes of the entire Second World War. Seeking to deal a knockout blow after successfully conquering much of continental Europe, Hitler unleashed the Luftwaffe against Britain, which, after the fall of Paris in June of 1940, stood virtually alone against the Nazi onslaught. Hitler sought to neutralize British air defenses in preparation for an invasion of Britain by sea. Yet despite attacking Britain through the air with overwhelming force, Hitler underestimated the resolve of the British people. The panels of the monument commemorate the contributions of Britons from all walks of life: from the observers who watched the sky for German planes, to the anti-aircraft gunners and ground crews, to the women working in factories and directing the squadrons in the air, and, of course, the pilots themselves, who seem to spring into action out of the wall in this panel. Although early attacks targeted British airfields and other military installations, the Luftwaffe soon began targeting civilians in an effort to break the will of the British people. Night after night, German bombers attacked London, as ordinary Britons sought refuge in bomb shelters. Here, the monument commemorates the British determination to continue one of their most cherished traditions—drinking tea—even under the most dire of circumstances. Although the Luftwaffe indiscriminately bombed all of London, the dome of St. Paul’s Cathedral remained unscathed, becoming an enduring symbol of British resistance. By the end of 1940, mounting German losses ultimately forced Hitler to postpone his planned invasion of Britain indefinitely. The heroism of the RAF pilots has become legendary, most famously expressed in Winston Churchill’s tribute, “Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few.”
