  • ...the use of Radio Direction Finding (RDF, later called radar...)...The technology was named RDF with misleading intent, to disguise the nature of the system to the enemy. In the same paragraph. Why was was the name RDF chosen with misleading intent? RDF does not need to be mentioned as the chosen name twice.

Good article? What a load of bollocks.[edit]

This article like many others is just a cut and paste job by inexperienced hobbyists who heap error on error:

The engagements resulting from Adlertag became known as the Battle of Britain. During the course of that campaign, the Luftwaffe was prevented from gaining air superiority by the RAF. As a result, Operation Sea Lion was cancelled.

What a load of guff, the Battle of Britain began in July. These engagements were part of the overall campaign. Wikipedia, proving once again it's for people to cheap to buy a well researched Osprey book! 81.132.173.185 (talk) 08:05, 15 September 2015 (UTC)

The quality of Osprey books vary greatly, and if that's your first reference I'd encourage you to branch out. Please read the introductions and bibliographies on wikipedia to avoid looking foolish. Dapi89 (talk) 20:34, 17 September 2015 (UTC)
