The Battle of Britain that raged over the skies of England in the summer and fall of 1940
is the most significant air battle in history. It helped to determine the ultimate outcome of World War II.
This 5 week study will examine the course of the battle itself and its long-term consequences,
as well as the elements that shaped it: the strategy, the men and women, and the machines.
This class will be taught by Louis Eltscher, an RIT professor emeritus who also has taught at
OASIS (Older Adults Seeking Intellectual Stimulation), an adult education program in Rochester.
