Synopsis by Alice Day
In 1940, there was a period of time when Europe was dominated by Hitler and his forces, and Britain was without much Allied support. Finest Hour: The Battle of Britain tells of the remarkable resilience of Britons as they stood up to the Axis powers. With information taken from previously unpublished diaries and memoirs, the program reveals how Coventry firemen, Spitfire pilots, women, teenagers, and small children responded to the Blitz, with details of the hardships they endured. The indomitable spirit of the Brits comes through in the personal testimonies of those who survived this dark time.
