Fighter Command: The Battle of Britain

Fighter Command is a solitaire, computer-based game set in World War Two. (Click then image above to see a full screen shot.) The Player is commander of 11 Group RAF, responsible for defending London and the surrounding area. The German Luftwaffe has started a program of bomber raids to bring England to her knees in preparation for an invasion of Britain. The game display shows the commad room map table and the wall board showing squadron status. Credit to the boardgame RAF August 1940: The Battle of Britain by West End Games for inspiration and borrowed game ideas.
