A box-set containing these three classic British War Films! Angels One Five (1952): This low-key intelligent Second World War drama attempts to show the reality of service life during the Battle of Britain. Director George More O’Ferrall draws on his first-hand knowledge of the subject gained during wartime RAF service to probe the emotions behind the British stiff upper lip. It was a big hit in its day and is still worth the time now. The Dam Busters (1955): Based on the true story during World War Two in which low level Bombers from England attempt to destory a key German industrial target. With the invention of an ingenious weapon they drop bombs into reservoirs in the Ruhr water system causing destructive floods. Aces High (1976): Based around a young officer who has come straight from school to fight on the Western Front against the Germans. However the regiment he joins of Green Pilots does not have a good life expectancy.
