No. 1 in the series "Know Your Allies" and "Know Your Enemies". The only other film produced, however, was Know Your Enemy - Japan (1945). See more »
There are more people on a square mile of Britain than there are on a square mile of Germany, Italy or Japan, more congestion than any place on earth, except the New York subway, or a sardine can...

This propaganda film, directed by Robert Stevenson, is available on the DVD for "Jane Eyre". The legendary Frank Capra served as producer.
Fun things we learn: Britain has "more congestion" than any place on Earth except a New York subway or a sardine can... and yet they have low levels of crime and the police do not carry guns! And no place in Britain is more than 100 miles from the sea!
While this is called a "propaganda" film, it should be noted that it does not actually carry all the negative baggage that the word propaganda implies today. Sure, it is promoting a political purpose... but it also happens to be rather informative. Audiences today might learn a good deal about how England was brought into World War II by watching it.
