Twelve O'Clock High is the story of the airmen of the 918th Bombardment Group based at Archbury, England. The great leadership skills of the commanding officers and how they dealt with their crews in daily life or death situations while fighting the Luftwaffe. This series had superior writing, sets and story lines-many of which were based on actual events of World War II. There is a lot of aerial combat footage used in this series from both the side of the Allies and the Axis powers. A superbly acted series with excellent casting. This series needs to be shown again in the United States as it is a great tool for teaching our young people what life and freedom was all about during this bygone era.
