Battle of Britain (1969) DVD9
The movie covers a very specific event in the history of World War II. An event that marked a turning point in the war and one that was incredibly dramatic because of its unbelievably narrow outcome. After NAZI-Germany had managed to conquer most of Europe the next logical and strategic step was to take Britain.
As a prelude, the German Luftwaffe mounts immense flights of fighters and bombers designed to knock out British air bases and destroy the planes of the R.A.F. Fighter Command. The latter is under the general direction of Air Chief Marshal Hugh Dowding with the front line defenses of 11 Group in southeastern England commanded by Air Vice Marshall Keith Park. As the summer progresses and multiple German attacks arrive every day, many German planes are shot down, but British losses of planes and particularly pilots become critical. Then on September 15, 1940, the Germans launch their largest attack so far.
