RAF The Battle of Britain Week #1 11-17 August 1940 p3

Day 2. 12th of August 1940

0600 Weather Clear, the German effort changes to All Out.

The Brits decide to go for gold…. 3 Spits, 5 Hurr. V 2 x109 2x J88 1x 111 and 2 Me110. Brits take a beating…..I don’t know why. 34 bomber factors hit in fatigued status. 1900 EOD 4VP

While I find this mildly interesting, I am not sure I want to crank thru 40 more turns of this. So far the situation has not felt terribly tense, and I’m likely doing something wrong. Regardless this title does provide a nice feel for the situation, just not the tense drama I was expecting. Filed to be repeated at some point.
