It Happened Here 1965
A chilling vision of what might have been had Germany conquered England during World War II, Kevin Brownlow and Andrew Mollo's It Happened Here (1966) is also a remarkable accomplishment in independent filmmaking.

The occupation of England is seen through the eyes of Pauline (Pauline Murray), a country nurse fleeing the fighting that has broken out between German troops and resistance partisans. Using Ireland as a base, the Americans and 'loyalist' English guerillas are attempting to re-invade from the West. Pauline witnesses a massacre of civilians. Believeing that the partisans were responsible, she decides like the majority of her countrymen that getting things back to normal is more important than patriotism. "After all," she sighs, "We did lose the war."
