Alistair Cooke recounts the battle that Sir Winston Churchill described as one of the decisive battles of the world; fought in the streets and homes of Britain, it turned every civilian into a frontline soldier. The film includes material shot from German and British fighter planes, setting the Blitz in the context of Nazi invasion plans, from 10 May 1940 to the fire of London one year later.
It is the story of the raging conflict between arrogance and guts - between the military might of Germany and the dogged, spirited endurance of the people Hitler calIed 'decadent'.
Commentary written and spoken by Alistair Cooke
Screenplay by Patrick Brawn Produced by Roy Simpson
