  • Their Finest Hour: Aircraft Of The Battle Of Britain [DVD] Their Finest Hour: Aircraft Of The Battle Of Britain | DVD | (13/09/2010) from £6.23  |  Saving you £11.76 (65.40%)  |  RRP £17.99

    The most beautiful aircraft ever designed' is how many would describe the Spitfire. Together with the legendary and more numerous fighter of the era the Hurricane this aircraft was successfully used in 1940 to halt the might of the advancing German war machine. The Hurricane was a sound aircraft often 'the fighter pilot's choice' being both sturdy and offering an excellent gun platform. But many other aircraft also played their part in defending the British shores from a vast and well equipped German Air Force. Just why was the Messerschmitt Bf 109E a better aircraft than the RAF's defending aircraft during the early stages of the battle? Why did the Hurricane shoot down three times more German bombers than the Spitfire? Why was the Heinkel He 111 the most successful bomber of the era? Why was the Stuka dive bomber so feared? What happened to the squadrons of Defiants that experienced such mixed fortunes that summer? How did the Germans develop such a vast and advanced airforce in the light of the restrictions placed on them after the First World War at the Treaty of Versailles? These unique DVDs answer these questions examining the significance of the technology behind the different aircraft in the Battle of Britain.

    Some people possess extraordinary talents. Adolf Hitler and Winston Churchill were two such men and each was to shape the destiny of their nation. One was to become the very symbol of evil whilst the other seventy years on is still admired and respected throughout the world. Their names seem to radiate the very worst and the very best of the human spirit. The strategic battles of Churchill and Hitler explain why the Second World War casts such a shadow over subsequent generations. This is an epic tale one that is on the one hand horrifying and on the other uplifting. Under their respective commands two leaders Hermann Goering and Hugh Dowding implemented tactics and directed the world's leading Air Forces in battles that were to shape the Western World. Their genius at a tactical level should not be underestimated. This DVD investigates how genius can be found in both strategy and tactics in both 'the big picture' and in the daily horrors of war.

    Should God forbid France fall we will need every available aircraft and every trained pilot to defend the shores of Britain from the invasion force which most surely will come. These words written by Air Chief Marshal Sir Hugh Dowding to Prime Minister Winston Churchill in May 1940 could not have been more true. There remained twenty miles or so of water between Hitler and Great Britain. Unless Hitler's Air Force had control of the skies between France and England any attempt to send an invasion force across that narrow strip of water would be disastrous. The stage was therefore set for an epic battle to control the skies over the English Channel and Southern England. Although aircraft production had been sufficiently increased fighter pilots took up to eighteen months to train. It was here that the RAF were in desperate need; and unless Britain's pilots could shoot down Luftwaffe aircraft at a rate of nearly four to one the RAF would be shot from the skies within weeks and Europe would become a secure fortress for the Third Reich. The defence of Britain and ultimately the free world therefore lay on the shoulders of a few hundred RAF pilots whose mission was to hold out at any cost... this remarkable new DVD tells the story of some of those pilots.

So did girls who joined the Land Army went to work in armaments factories became billeting officers or took one of numerous other positions. These needed to be filled while their husbands fathers or brothers were fighting in the armed forces. 1940s Britain was a whole nation at war and the civilian population was also on the front line...

    While the skies were scarred from vapour trails representing the vicious aerial combat between Britain's defending fighters and hundreds of advancing enemy bombers the battlefield on the ground below was different to any other seen in history.

This DVD examines the modernised RAF command structure the airfields the unique integrated defence and communications system and the significant effort and spirit of people from all walks of life who combined their resources and skills to defend Britain against the most powerful army in the world.
