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
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.

Re-watching Foyle's War episodes on DVD, I am struck with how the series improved in the second season. The mystery elements became more complex--with more potential suspects to be sorted out--and the period detail was rendered more convincingly. The only problem I had with this episode was how quickly the industrialist's son (played by Lawrence Fox) caved in and admitted his guilt. I realize this is part of the convention of these mystery shows, but one would think this arrogant young man would feel he could easily win against a British court, and would, therefore not blurt out a confession. One of the real treats of this episode is seeing lovely Emily Blunt, before her great success in theatrical films ("My Summer of Love," "The Devil Wears Prada"), playing Lucy.
