It is considered by many to be the finest British film ever made. A stirring masterpiece like no other. The indelible General Clive Candy barely survives four decades of tumultuous British history (1902 to 1942), only to see the world change irrevocably before his eyes. Blimp is both moving and slyly satirical, an incomparable film about war, love, and aging

During a blackout, three train passengers arrive at Chillingbourne in Kent. Londoner Alison Smith is a feisty representative of the Women's Land Army (aka the "land girls"). Bob Johnson is an American soldier whose intended destination was Canterbury. Peter Gibbs is a classical music student who worked in peacetime as a cinema organist. As they make their way through the village, Alison has something poured on to her hair by an unseen attacker. She is the latest victim of the Glue Man, a nocturnal rogue who harasses young women who date American soldiers. She, along with Bob and Peter, vow to track him down. Ostensibly a mystery, the film is principally a portrait of the bucolic English countryside during wartime

The parallel is the goal of a small group of Nazis, survivors of a U-boat that has been spotted and sunk in Hudson Bay, deep in Canadian waters. The United States is not yet at war with Germany, and if Corporal Hirth and his six crew members can reach it, they can be repatriated to Germany with no fuss. But their trek across Canada becomes a fierce struggle to survive, as they encounter and are opposed in turn by Johnnie the trapper, a small Hutterite community, a Canadian intellectual, and a Canadian soldier gone AWOL

The life and death of Colonel Blimp by Michael Powell( Book )

7 editions published between 1943 and 2002 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp traces, in flashback, the intertwined lives of a dashing young officer and his German Counterpart from their first encounter, fighting a duel in Berlin in 1902, to a double defeat - the gallant British officer becomes a crusty old Blimp, and his gallant German counterpart arrives in England as a pathetic refugee from Nazi Germany. The plot is juxtaposed to that of the British officer's thrice lost love - which introduces a disturbing undercurrent of romantic pessimism into what might otherwise seem a nostalgic chronicle. This volume also contains documentary material relevant to Powell and Pressburger's struggle to get the film made in war-torn Britain
