A.J.P. Taylor discusses Germany's dominance of Europe in the summer of 1940 and suggests that it was the only time in Europe's history that the continent was united. He also proposes that Britain's basic contribution during this period was to ensure that a "war-like situation" would remain. Finally, he considers the stalemate that existed between Britain and Germany after Hitler's failed invasion of Britain.
