On the Offensive: France 1941

On the Offensive: France 1941

Image result for SHORT STIRLING


After the Battle of Britain, the RAF took the fight to the Luftwaffe across the English Channel. Fighter sweeps and daylight raids against various targets were common in 1941. These small enaggements continued into the next year. The fighting was not as fierce as the Battle of Britain or Zerberus, but the RAF and Luftwaffe traded blows for months throughout the year. 

The event is to be a loose simulation of these aerial struggles over the coast of Western France.
