William S. Phillips - Confrontation at Beachy Head

On August 6, 1940, Germany mounted a massive air attack on Great Britain. The Germans reasoned that if they could control the sky over England, the country would soon fall - as Poland, Austria and France had already fallen. What they had not anticipated was the fierceness with which the English took to the skies to do battle. Many young English pilots would die preserving the freedom of their country. But by September 15, 1940, their sacrifices would prove not to have been in vain; the English and their allies had repulsed the German takeover.

Shrieking over the cliffs of Beachy Head, a Spitfire of No. 92 Squadron and a German BF109E of 9/JG54 engage in a head-on confrontation during the first week of September 1940. This highly contested piece of real estate was to see many similar confrontations during the crucial days between August 6 and September 15, 1940. Who was to obtain the advantage in this confrontation of grim skill? You be the judge. - WP
