    it was the first real nazi defeat as they failed to take britain with the brits kaining up the luftwaffe.
    this gave a lot of morale to the british after their defeats at places like dunkirk

    also i think it was when America decided to take a bigger role in the war?

    If the RAF hadn't held out and finally forced Hitler to put off his planned invasion of the UK, there wouldn't have been a staging post for the US when they finally decided to get involved. No staging post for the counter attack, and there would have been only one possible outcome - a German win in Europe, remember the Army were still battered from the Battle of France. From this point the Nazis could have recovered, re-built and then moved on the US, as planned. Another crucial point to remember is that Britain stood alone at the time of the BoB and the RAF were very nearly beaten. If Hitler hadn't switched his target and bombing campaign to the cities (giving the RAF a chance to recover), the RAF would have been obliterated within weeks, allowing free passage to the planned invasion force. 'Never in the history of human conflict, has so much been owed by so many, to so few'- Churchill (may not be word perfect!).

    It turned back the Luftwaffe and stopped the invasion of Britain. Hitler then turned his attentions to Russia.
