The Battle Of BritainStreaming Video - 2012
June 1940 and Western Europe is under German domination. German bombers shell channel convoys and the RAF is drawn into battle. The British public contributes pots and pans and scrap metal to build airplanes. The Home Guard-the local volunteer defense force-numbers one-and-a-half million men but only 70,000 rifles. As Italy enters the war, Americans fear that Britain will be defeated. Britain sustains heavy losses as the Germans bomb aircraft factories. Air raid shelters become part of everyday life as 1,000-bomber raids over London become a nightly event. The Blitz has begun.
