Abstract:

Fighters of the RAF: From the Battle of Britain, to the siege of Malta and the flaming fighter-bomber cauldron over Normandy, the brave men of the RAF helped turn the tide against the Luftwaffe and paved the way for ultimate victory. Follow us as Churchill's famous "Few" relate their incredible experiences during some of the greatest air campaigns of World War II.

Defenders of the Reich: The success of the German army in the first half of World War II was due in large part to German supremacy in the air. The Luftwaffe, working closely with German army units on the ground, seemed on the verge of world domination. However, with America's entrance into the war, the battle for the skies over Europe was on. Even with Germany throwing advanced warplanes such as the Me 262 jet at the Allies, the Luftwaffe was outmatched. Relive the harrowing accounts of these battles as told by both German and American pilots.

Fighter Tactics 101: Follow the evolution of air combat tactics during World War II through the experiences of the pilots who flew the nimble and deadly fighter aircraft. See how aircraft performance dictated tactics and determined who would live and who would die in the skies over Europe.
