The Battle of Britain & The Way We Were At War Offer



The Battle Of Britain

By July 1940, France had fallen and the might of the seemingly unstoppable Nazi war machine was massed across the English Channel.

Britain stood alone in its opposition to Hitler, its only defence against the German Luftwaffe, a handful of brave young fighter pilots and the dogged determination of the British people never to surrender.

Against overwhelming odds, Britain stood firm against Hitler’s onslaught and in doing so changed the course of world history.

This film was made in 1942 using dramatic footage from the time and tells the story of that epic battle for freedom through the eyes of those who lived through it.

Running time 53 minutes.
