Product Overview

Featuring a "big stellar cast" (Variety), including Michael Caine, Trevor Howard, Laurence Olivier, Christopher Plummer, Michael Redgrave, Robert Shaw, Susannah York, and Edward Fox, Battle of Britain is a spectacular retelling of a true story that shows courage at its inspiring best. Few defining moments can change the outcome of war. But when the outnumbered Royal Air Force defied insurmountable odds in engaging the German Luftwaffe, it may well have altered the course of history!

Editors Note
Note A powerful and colorful portrayal of an understaffed, technically inferior royal air-crew who valiantly holds off the superior forces of the German Luftwaffe. This pivotal battle of World War II could have led to the Germans winning the war. The incredible cast includes Michael Caine, Robert Shaw, Curt Jurgens, and Laurence Olivier. Based on the actual events.
Plot Summary
Summary A star-studded re-creation of the epic 1940 battle that took place in the skies over England. Surprised and undermanned, the British forces used determination and guile to fend off a ferocious Nazi air attack in the early days of World War II. If England had lost, the Germans may very well have won the war.
Wall Street Journal "This production, under the direction of Guy Hamilton, pulled together a veritable international air force of authentic airplanes in flying condition....The cast is fairly dazzling too..." 01/20/2012
