The series outlines the Phoney War following the Munich Crisis, the invasions of Czechoslovakia and Poland, the miracle at Dunkirk, the Battle Of Britain in June 1940 and the Royal Air Force involvement against massive airpower from the Germans. The Blitz follows as Hitler pounds London day & night killing some 40,000 people and leaving another 200,000 homeless. The Turning Tide sees new comradeships and determination amongst the people of Britain.
The Final Chapter deals with the crushing defeats of the Germans by the Russians, the D Day Invasion and the final throws of war as the Germans unleash their wicked V1 & V2 unmanned bombs against London and their eventual surrender.
