This 3 disc DVD box set features historical documentaries on the greatest battles of WWII. These 3 fascinating films feature incredible footage from the land, sea and air, captured on battlefronts from North Africa to Norway.
Disc 1- British Battles of World War II – From 1940 for the Allies it was a time of constant defeat. First Norway, then the Low Countries and finally France fell to the Nazis. However after the miraculous evacuation of the British Forces off the beach at Dunkirk, the tables were soon to turn.
Disc 2 – Desert Battles of World War II – The desert wasteland of North Africa was where Britain and her Allies found their early successes against the legions of Dictator Benito Mussolini, and then against Erwin Rommel’s Afrika Korps. These breakthroughs, particularly the victory at El Alamein in November 1942, are regarded as the turning points of the war.
Disc 3 – Battle of the Atlantic and Battle of Britain – The Battle of the Atlantic was a fight for Britain’s survival. Not only was it the longest campaign of World War II, it was also perhaps the most crucial. The Battle of Britain, the desperate struggle to defend Britain’s shores against the unrelenting German aerial onslaught, resounds through the years as the RAF’s finest hour.
