he Battle of Britain (German: Luftschlacht um England, literally “The Air Battle for England”) was a military campaign of the Second World War, in which the Royal Air Force(RAF) defended the United Kingdom (UK) against large-scale attacks by Nazi Germany‘s air force, the Luftwaffe. It has been described as the first major military campaign fought entirely by air forces. The British officially recognise the battle’s duration as being from 10 July until 31 October 1940, which overlaps the period of large-scale night attacks known as the Blitz, that lasted from 7 September 1940 to 11 May 1941. German historians do not accept this subdivision and regard the battle as a single campaign lasting from July 1940 to June 1941, including the Blitz.
German Ring Battle of Britain , unofficially called Totenkopf ring (“Death’s Head Ring”), was an award of Heinrich Himmler’s Schutzstaffel (SS).
Totenkopf Ring Der ϟϟ
Potency of imagery in SS brotherhood was not lost on its leader, Heinrich Himmler, and was clearly in his mind when early in life of organization he instituted Ring der SS (April 1934). Totenkopf ring prominently featured runes and mystical symbols of SS, symbols that played a significant role in magnifying the veil of obscurity and mystique that covered organization. The award was both a product of, and a source nourishment to hint of arrogance that surrounds all military units that consider themselves elite. SS Totenkopf ring der SS ring was not a National decoration and could not be earned per say.
