Battle Ground - The Battle of Britain [DVD]


Prime Minister Winston Churchill addressed Parliament and declared "I expect that the Battle of Britain is about to begin," and begin it did, with the Luftwaffe launching the most deadly and sustained aerial bombardment in the history or warfare. The British people and their Royal Air Force responded with valor and glory, bending, but not breaking. Churchill called it "their finest hour." This 2 DVD set brings you the amazing story of the Battle of Britain, as well as background on the RAF and their subsequent role in the air war over Germany.
