Britain at War WW2 (Triple DVD Collection) [DVD]
Disc 1. The Dambusters 1 x 45:00 min Dropped from extremely low altitudes over water, the Dambuster Bombs would bounce across the surface like a skipping stone before striking their targets. THE DAMBUSTERS relives the daring mission flown by the men of the 617 squadron who set off on the night of May 16, 1943. See how this historic mission unfolds in this remarkable documentary Disc 2. Bernard Montgomery 1 x 52:00 min This is a profile of one of Britain's greatest war heroes. Monty' successfully commanded Allied forces at the legendary Battle of El Alamein and troops under his command were largely responsible for the expulsion of the Axis forces from North Africa. He was later a prominent leader in Italy and North-West Europe where he was in command of all Allied ground forces during Operation Overlord. Disc 3. The Battle of Britain 1 x 50:00 min The battle fought over Britain between the 10th July and 31st October 1940 was the most important RAF battle of the entire war. Fighter Command took on the Luftwaffe units arrayed against them and won. Using Pathe archive material as well as rarely seen colour footage of London's Blitz, this programme tells the blow-by-blow story of the desperately close-run conflict that was the death or glory battle fought in the skies over Britain.
