Air Front: The Early Years 39-42
(Full Frame, Dolby)
World War II saw perhaps the greatest advancement in air warfare of the 20th century. Conflict was now determined on the battlefield and in the air above, with both fighter aircraft and bombers playing a much larger role. In this program, the first in a series of 3 following the development of air assault, the conflict between Germany and Britain is examined before the US entered the fray.
