  7. DEFEAT OF THE FEW: THE LUFTWAFFE'S CAMPAIGN TO DESTROY
    £30.00

However, this is only part of the story. The results of an air campaign cannot be measured in terms of territory captured, cities occupied or armies defeated, routed or annihilated. Successful air campaigns are those that achieve their intended aims or stated objectives. Victory in the Battle of Britain was determined by whether the Luftwaffe achieved its objectives.
