When I was in 5th or 6th grade, I read about the battle that is depicted in this book. It was also my first exposure to the Battle of Britain. We had a collection of books, kind of like an encyclopedia, except each book was concerned with a particular topic. The particular topic of the book in which I read about the Battle of Vienna and the Battle of Britain was called something liked "Greatest Battles." I seem to recall it also containing an account of the Ancient Egyptians defending Egypt from invaders, and an account of a battle whereby the Swiss defeated a much better equipped army of Habsburg knights.
