From the blood-stained beaches of Dunkirk to the terror of young aircraft pilots in the depths of war, through to a case of mistaken identity in the German POW camps. From a quiet English village on alert of the arrival of the enemy to the life of an RAF fighter station during the Battle of Britain. Featuring outstanding performances from acting greats such as John Mills and Malcom McDowell, these five classic war films are tales of survival, resolve and bravery.

DUNKIRK
Dunkirk follows the dramatic events leading up to Operation Dynamo, where the British Army attempted to rescue fellow soldiers and Allied troops from Nazi-occupied France. Starring John Mills.

ACES HIGH
New air force recruit Peter Firth takes an instant dislike to his embittered squadron leader, Malcolm McDowell. But as the young pilot experiences the tensions and stresses of warfare, his dislike turns to admiration.

WENT THE DAY WELL?
A rare foray into darker material by Ealing Studios, Alberto Cavalcanti’s film tells the story of a quiet English village, infiltrated by German soldiers masquerading as British troops, leaving the plucky villagers to uncover the plot and fight back.

THE CAPTIVE HEART
WW2 drama based on a true story about a Czech Captain (Michael Redgrave) who to conceal his identity, pretends to be a dead British officer. After being thrown into a German POW camp the other inmates begin to doubt his story and he must do all he can to convince them he’s not a spy.

ANGELS ONE FIVE
The Battle of Britain as seen through the eyes of the operations room of a Kent fighter station during the summer of 1940. A young, inexperienced pilot has trouble settling into squadron life.
