THEIR FINEST HOURS: THE R.A.F. & THE BATTLE OF BRITAIN. "Never in the history of human conflict has so much been owed by so many to so few." Winston Churchill?s ringing words are the enduring legacy of the brave pilots of the Royal Air Force who fought and won the Battle of Britain. Produced with the full support of the RAF, Their Finest Hour: The RAF and the Battle of Britain is the story of the pilots and the fighters who in the summer of 1940 formed the thin line defending Britain from the planned Nazi invasion. Badly outnumbered, risking life and limb while the world held its breath, they defied the might of the Luftwaffe. For the pilots and for the RAF, this truly was their finest hour.
Includes the Oscar winning account of the Battle of Britain filmed by Hollywood director Frank Capra as it actually happened. Using real footage of the conflict and live testimonials and interviews, Capra captured magnificently the horror and the heroism of life in London during the Blitz. DVD video. Approximately 94 minutes
