    Description

    (from GMT games website:)

    Beginning with the fighting above the Channel convoys and ending with the assault on London and the fighter-bomber offensive, The Burning Blue simulates battles between German air power and the British air defence system. It recreates the tense minute-by-minute 'plotting board' battles between RAF fighter controllers and the Luftwaffe air raids.[...]

    Based on original archive research and with the help of pilot veterans of the Battle of Britain, The Burning Blue models this famous conflict in unprecedented detail. Playable and exciting, the game provides new insights into this turning point of World War Two.
