What is the "Battle of Britain"?

The Battle of Britain

German planes bombed London and other British cities during the Battle of Britain. British fighter pilots used radar, a new invention, to detect the approach of enemy planes. They then took to the air, gunning down nearly two thousand German planes. By late 1940, after months of bombing, Hitler gave up his planned invasion of Britain. Still, German armies occupied most of Europe.
