"Supremacy in the air is the sole method that is open for us to regain our old island independence."
- Winston Churchill
In the summer and fall of 1940, after the fall of France, the German Luftwaffe faced the Royal Air Force in the first major military campaign fought entirely in the air - the Battle of Britain. This was the prelude to the invasion Hitler planned for the British Islands - Operation Sealion. An ultimate German victory was at hand, and British pilots bravely flew into battle, fully aware of what a defeat would bring to their country and the entire free world.
Now, with this WW2 Wings of Glory Battle of Britain Starter Set you can bring to life the epic aerial duels between the Axis and Allied aces on your tabletop. Defend Britain as an Allied pilot, controlling one of the most iconic WW2 airplanes, the Spit fire; or fly dangerous missions as a German pilot in a powerful Messerschmitt Bf.109 fighter.
Wings of Glory is an expandable game system that allows players to recreate aerial combat during World War I and II, using cards and miniatures to represent the airplanes and their maneuvers.
