Horribly inaccurate
9 March 2019 | by chrisjgreySee all my reviews

Not a single mention of the foreign pilots who constituted 20% of the RAF fighter command during the battle. Not mentioning the Polish pilots is like making a documentary about the 1966 World Cup Final without mentioning Sir Geoff Hurst. 303 Polish Squadron top scored during the Battle of Britain and pilots from many other countries helped a beleaguered Britain to survive... just. This is a highly innacurate account of what actually happened.
