In this installment of the "Why We Fight" propaganda film series, we have the account of Great Britain's last stand against the forces of Nazi Germany. This mainly focuses on the desperate, but successful, battle to maintain their vital air superiority over the British Isles and the morale of the people to prevent invasion. Written by

In the year 2000, the United States Library of Congress mandated that this film (and the other six documentaries in the 'Why We Fight' series) were "culturally significant" and selected them for preservation in the National Film Registry. See more »
The series "Why We Fight" was made so that the soldiers who were fighting knew the history behind the war, and who their enemies were. That being the case, it is also a great source for students who are just learning about World War II. This particular short talks about how brave and steadfast Britain was while being attacked by the Germans. With maps and footage taken from the enemy, plus shots showing the famous English 'stiff upper lip,' you find out just how outnumbered England was, and yet still they prevailed! A very good film, especially if you follow it with a showing of "Mrs. Miniver."
