Take command over RAF during the WW2 history turning point, the Battle of Britain! The goal of the game is to defend Great Britain against German bombing raids. The game has two distinct gameplay experiences where: * The player manages war production and squadron placement * The player organizes patrol routes and tactics The game follows the historical timeline very closely, but at the same time - the game mechanics are easy to learn (yet hard to master) and it provides great entertainment for both seasoned and novice players. * There are 12 aircrafts in the game - including of course the famous Supermarine Spitfire! * Every pilot is earning his own experience - witness your rookies become aces! * Manage the British war machine - decide what should be built and where * Fight epic air battles! * Lead English, Polish, Czechs and New Zelands squadrons to fight for freedom! Download the game now and see if you have the guts to blast those Jerries out of the English sky!

HistoricalGamer did two really awesome "Let's Play" videos from The Few (that's nearly 2h of the gameplay shown in there) - check them out!

Really bad work, first idea was good but very poor execution.

If you do not command plane who to attack he will just go straight even if enemy is shooting at it, and you will not see who is enemy until you zoom in on its wing to see markings.

Squadron can fly over airfield and crash because it is out of fuel, and all pilots are killed.

Design is pretty basic and not very user friendly.

It had the chance to be very good game but this way it is only quarter of game. There were much better games on Spectrum.

This one is better, but realtime and supply/squads/industry management.
