Summary
  • Battle of Britain : "Spectacular retelling of a true story that shows courage at its inspiring best. When the outnumbered Royal Air Force defied insurmountable odds in engaging the German Luftwaffe, they may well have altered the course of history." -- Back cover
  • A bridge too far : "An epic retelling of World War II's most tragic blunder, A bridge too far meticulously depicts the ambitious plan which resulted in more Allied casualties than the entire Normandy landing."--Container
  • 633 squadron : "Excitement, adventure, derring-do and courage in the war-torn skies over northern Europe are the 'right stuff' for this pulse-pounding World War II air drama...Robertson, an avid flyer in real life, plays a combat-weary pilot whose R.A.F. squadron is ordered on an apparent suicide mission to destroy a Nazi rocket fuel plant tucked deep into a Norwegian fjord"--Container
  • The train : WWII thriller about a French railway inspector whose low-key resistance efforts become vitally urgent when the Nazis try to steal a trainload of France's most treasured paintings, and it's up to him to stop the train
