More insight into wartime Britain
21 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Every episode of Foyle's War shows some novel aspect of Britain between the onset of the war in 1939 and the entry of America in 1941. The atmosphere is one of imminent invasion from Germany with a Nazi victory likely.

This episode touches on corporate collaborators - companies who struck deals with the Nazis in anticipation of a German victory. It also shows the raw material resource shortages and the salvage drives that results.

Hardly the stuff of history books.

Another first-rate episode.
