THE BURNING BLUE is a board wargame that recreates the savage air battles over Southern England from July to December 1940. Beginning with the fighting above the Channel convoys and ending with the assault on London and the fighter-bomber offensive, it simulates battles between German air power and the British air defense system. Based on original archive research and with the help of pilot veterans of the Battle of Britain, it models this famous conflict in unprecedented detail.
