"Never has the field of human conflict has so much been owed by so many to so few..." Guy Hamilton's Battle of Britain, set during the RAF's pivotal battle against Germany's Luftwaffe, is a must-have for anyone interested in WW2 and aviation. Spitfires, Hurricanes, Stukas, Heinkels duke it out in spectacular fashion! The filmic style foreshadows the gritty non-glamorized style of more recent war films, giving viewers a grim taste of how the air war was waged. Plus, the set comes with documentaries about the aircraft restorations and filming aerial combat, as well as a featurette on an RAF squadron leader's recollection of the battle. Get it if you have the opportunity!
