More Details

Synopsis:
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.

Reviews:
"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 Wall Street Journal
