It uses black and white newsreels of the time, some reenactments and some of the actual people involved in the operations; showing what they did and how these 3D photo reconnaissance missions were made. The Spitfire became in these instances a spy plane to photograph, observe and determine what targets were like in enemy territory and to discern what actions were taking place. We are shown the discovery of rocket sites and how analyses were made.
The importance and difficulty of these missions are well revealed. This is a little known part of the war that is fascinating and amazing for the detail and the significance of what it accomplished. The photo analysis experts give their thoughts and recollections as well as some historians. The irritating aspect is that a male narrator will explain what is happening in the footage and then a female voice will come in with a comment which makes a verbal confusion/ annoyance.
The addition of Hollywood's help after America's entrance into the war is described, but the emphasis is on the British effort. Footage is also shown of what is left of the German rocket sites today.
This is indeed a well done and worthwhile record of the 3D spies of WWII.
I must admit that another reviewer's questioning of the accuracy of the history gave me pause but regardless of the accuracy of the politics, the ability to see the footage of the old photos, the ruins of the rocket sites and the original model created from stereoscopes made it a very worthwhile DVD.
BTW, I assume any WWII buff will already be familiar with the Foyle's War DVD Foyle's War: Set 1 (The German Woman / The White Feather / A Lesson In Murder / Eagle Day) series, but just in case you aren't, do check it out. Like this DVD, it takes lesser known aspects of the war and shares it in a compelling fashion.
