Battle of Britain is important no question about it, but it's not the greatest air battle of ww2 at all!

Kursk or Stalingrad easily beat any ground or air battle in number of planes and importance to the victory.

Who has doubt, picup history books and look for statistics.

aw hell i'm replying to this one anyway

Kursk and Stalingrad whilst having a large component of air war - were overwhelmingly land battles, even though there may have been more planes involved than BoB(i'll take your word on that one) it was the battles on the land that were the main deciding factor to the outcome of these events.

BoB although it may have had less airplanes was one of the largest air battles(if not THE) as that was decided on Airpower alone - ( or a battle order made up overwhelmigly of airplanes - there were a few land components)

And don't forget that the BoB had a big effect too. It was not fought with groundtroops but still was one of the major battles causeing the defeat of Germany. If the Brits would have lost air superiority over their island, well... German landing troops were already prepared, they just never crossed cause they couldn't win in the air which is necessary for such a landing operation. The british army was still suffering from the defeat in France and if the germans would have landed with air superiority the situation might have been different. Don't forget, there would have been no british bomber attacks, no british ground troups for NAfrica and no bases for the USAAF. That's why the BoB is as important as Stalingrad and Kursk.
