Some British millennials think
Battle of Britain was Viking invasion: survey

Story by Stephen J. Thorne

Forty-four per cent of respondents to a recent British survey had no idea what the Battle of Britain was. A third of those aged 18-24 did know what it was, but another 30 per cent admitted they had no idea about the 1940 air battle that saved the islands from Nazi occupation.

Two-thirds of millennials who responded to the survey confused it with other military or political events:

  • 12 per cent of respondents aged 18-24 believed it to be a First World War fight for supremacy over the English Channel;
  • nine per cent said it was the civil war fought between England and Scotland in 1646;
  • six per cent called it a Viking invasion;
  • and three per cent said it was the 2019 general election.
