Friday WWII Flix: “Battle of Britain”


WWII – a few weeks ago now I watched another of the WWII era movies from my collection. The movie “Battle of Britain” was released in 1969. The synopsis per IMDB:

In 1940, the British Royal Air Force fights a desperate battle to prevent the Luftwaffe from gaining air superiority over the English Channel as a prelude to a possible Axis invasion of the U.K.

This movie is a dramatization of the effort by the British to fight off the German Luftwaffe over the period from July 10 until October 31, 1940. This period is identified by historians as the Battle of Britain. The Germans were attacking in an effort to force the capitulation of Britain and prepare for invasion.

I thought that this was a pretty good movie, though the aircraft used in the making was limited to only a few working aircraft. It is one of the few movies in my collection that is in color. The movie earned a 7.0/10 on IMDB.
