Product Description

With a wingspan of over 103 feet and weighing a mind-boggling 55,000 pounds at takeoff, the four engine B-17 Flying Fortress was one of the most popular warplanes ever built. The Flying Fortress first flew on July 28, 1935. Few B-17s were in service at the end of 1941, but by May 1945 an amazing 12,726 B-17s had rolled out of the factories. With a maximum speed of 300 mph and an astounding range of 1850 miles, the Flying Fortress struck terror in the hearts of Germans whenever it took to the skies. Come fly with the daring men of the United States Army Air force in their matchless bombers. Join the action high over enemy territory. Witness the heartbreaking moments when comrades sacrifice their lives for the country. This DVD follows a B-17 squadron right into the heart of the action!

From the Contributor

Witness how the ambitions of one power-hungry man - Adolf Hitler - changed the course of world history forever! From his unprovoked invasion of Holland to his brilliant tactical invasion of France, this DVD provides an in-depth view of how Hitler planned to bring Europe and the rest of the world under the Nazi flag!

Three events helped usher in World War II: Japan’s overrunning of Manchuria; Italy’s, invasion of Ethiopia; and - most important -- Adolf Hitler’s rise to power in Germany. Hitler soon began to threaten other European nations and started the war in a bid to conquer the continent of Europe and envisioned enslaving the rest of the world in due course of time as well.

The outbreak of war in Europe, with the German Blitzkrieg [lightning war] invasion of Poland in September 1939, led to Great Britain and France declaring war on Germany. The German Blitzkrieg into Poland was, however, soon followed by the Sitzkrieg "phony war" during the winter of 1939-1940. During this war, Germany rapidly rearmed, adding a million new soldiers, vastly increasing its ammunition stockpile, and tripling the number of medium and heavy tanks. As the Sitzkrieg gained momentum, Germany announced a blockade of Britain.

The Blitzkrieg was renewed in April 1940, when Germany invaded Denmark and Norway. The tactical superiority of the Germans was evident throughout the first few months of the war. Hitler’s massive propaganda machine, based on a series of well-camouflaged lies was successful in hoodwinking the Scandinavian neighbors into complacency.

This DVD deals with Hitler’s ambitious forays into defenseless Denmark, Norway and Belgium, and the retaliatory action of the British and French forces, in an insightful manner.
