Movie Info

England's brave stand against Germany during World War II is the subject of this documentary short subject, which combines British combat footage, film seized from German forces, and American newsreel material to tell the tale of the Battle of Britain, in which the Royal Air Force, against heavy odds, staved off an invasion of Axis forces. Churchill's Island also examines the United Kingdom's war at sea and their valiant efforts to ward off German ships attempting to sink anything they could find in British waters. Lorne Greene narrates this version; a version prepared for distribution in France is narrated by Gerard Arthur.

WWII short subject 21 minute Oscar winner explains the early war on Britain from Germany in WWII. Lots of combat footage captured from German sources. While propaganda, it's still informative and great stuff for Memorial Day.

It presents the strategy of the Battle of Britain, showing with penetrating clarity the relationship of the various forces that went to make up the island's defences. Here is the Royal Air Force in it's epic battle with the Luftwaffe, the Navy in its stubborn fight against the raiders of sea and sky, the coastal defences, the mechanized cavalry, the merchant seamen and behind them all, Britain's tough, unbending civilian army."
