Notes
Content : Picture caption: "Luftwaffe und Kriegsmarine nahmen den Kampf gegen den letzten Feind Großdeutschlands auf: gegen England! Tag für Tag wurden neue hohe Ziffern von versenkten Schiffsraum gemeldet. England, das mit der Blockadepolitik siegen wollte, wurde nun immer enger und dichter umschlossen. Die letzte, die entscheidende Endphase des deutschen Befreiungskampfes steht vor der Tür."

Content : The campaign that came to be known as the "Battle of Britain" began with German attacks by dive bombers, small surface ships and submarines against British shipping in the English Channel.
