    I think you will find that Hurricanes shot down more planes during the Battle of Britain than the Spitfires. While the Germans may have had more total planes they were just about even on a day to day basis. Were you counting bombers as well as fighters. Air war continued on for the duration of the war .

    Have to say taking a rather UK centric view of the war.

    It either started when Japan invaded China and later became part of the world conflict or 3rd Sept 1939 when France and the British Empire declared war on Germany- thus involving countries from all corners of the world.

    The German invasion of Poland was a local war and if you believe that should be included in the war dates, the Chinese/Japan conflict should take precedence.
