Synopsis by Nathan Southern
A documentary release from ArtsMagic, German Fighter Aircraft of WWII: 1942-45 looks back at World War Two with a half-century of hindsight, chronicling, in great detail, the Luftwaffe's ultimately-futile attempt to defend Germany from daytime air raids at the hands of the United States, which became the Third Reich's central gravest threat. Between 1942 and 1945, Germany relied consistently on two aircraft models, the BF-109 and the FW-190, to ward off an expanding array of Allied bombers. This program chronicles the various efforts in this defense campaign with detailed onscreen battle illustrations and fascinating wartime archival footage.
