In reality Adolf Hitler had no intention of ever attempting an invasion of the UK, as he admitted to the General Staff on 14 August 1940. Operation Sea Lion was likely a bluff to put pressure on the UK to come to terms with the Axis Powers following the Fall of France. See more »

Often when TV series are transferred to the big screen, they lose their appeal. Not in this case! The historical accuracy in costumes, equipment and general art direction, like the TV series, is outstanding. A good example of comedy and farce, with excellent script and comedy actors in the right parts. Based on a classic TV series that stands alone in British TV Comedy history.
