Synopsis by Rob Ferrier
Director Frank Capra is deservedly well known not only for his triumphs in Hollywood, but for the Why We Fight series that he created for the U.S. government during World War II. Each tape in this series collects film he shot during those years, here thematically framed. Narrated by George Marshall, each tape explains a battle or feature of World War II from the American side. In this particular tape, viewers are introduced to the country of Britain and the vital role she played in defeating the Axis powers.
