Waste of time if you ask me. I stopped half way because of:
-too much Hollywood acting, too little history. The ep. about Trafalgar was done much better.
-too narrow focus. Where were the Czechs, Belgians, Americans and all the Colonials who never had been in the UK before?
-too many myths. The RAF was loosing(they never did), they were outnumbered(except in the category of planes that mattered)...
The docu the BBC made was much, much better.

A nice testimony with surviving Polish veterans . Too bad they say it is "untold". In my opinion the Polish contribution is a well known fact, so is the contribution of other nations.
This was well know in Britain, but I growing up in communist Poland knew nothing about it.

In France the Poles had their own insignia "Jeszce Polska Nie zgenela" and their group I/145 Varsovie led by Commandant Joseph kepinski scored 12 kills in June 1940. This explains why the poles kept saying "oui mon Commandant" to their Raf leaders .

He also said that there was a rumour that they were nipple biters. Don't ask me why he passed on that bit of info, maybe a combat flyboy could explain it to me.
