Breaking Point by John Rhodes is a story of the Battle of Britain during World War II. Most of the characters are fictionalized as are most of the air battles. However, many of the military and air battles are true to life.

I was hesitant at first as I started Breaking Point as this is not my favorite genre. By the second page, I knew this was going to be a good book. I was right. I was alive during this period of time and remember listening to Walter Winchell report over his radio news program about the Battle of Britain.

Rhodes weaves the story around actual air battles and the people involved both fictional and real life. This engrossing book takes us into the airmen's lives on the ground. It reveals how their dogged determination helped to win the war and the emotional price they paid to climb into their planes to do what they knew had to be done.

This period was a very trying time for Britain and the Breaking Point brings to life what was given to save a nation.
