Illustrates prewar complacence and early losses from German bombings. Chamberlain, Mussolini, and Hitler sign the Munich Pact. Men are inducted into the Army. Planes drop leaflets over Germany. Britain goes on the offensive: planes strafe ships, soldiers are stationed throughout the Empire, and troops cross North Africa. Shows hordes of Italian prisoners. Compares legislative processes in the U.S. and Britain and explains the role of the crown and the relations between Britain and India. Shows several views of the Royal Family.
