Goering is ready for Phase Two. Fighter Command’s air shield will be tested as more and more raids approach the British coasts. And now that the Radar towers will be targeted, the RAF must fight off the raiders during the day and make repairs at night. Exhaustion will become the order of the day. Meanwhile in East Africa, the Italian troops are closing in on Berbera, the capital of British Somaliland.
