Some people possess extraordinary talents. Adolf Hitler and Winston Churchill were two such men, and each was to shape the destiny of their nation. One was to become the very symbol of evil, whilst the other, seventy years on, is still admired and respected throughout the world. Their names seem to radiate the very worst and the very best of the human spirit.
The strategic battles of Churchill and Hitler explain why the Second World War casts such a shadow over subsequent generations. This is an epic tale, one that is on the one hand horrifying and on the other uplifting.
Under their respective commands, two leaders, Hermann Goering and Hugh Dowding implemented tactics and directed the world’s leading Air Forces in battles that were to shape the Western World. Their genius at a tactical level should not be underestimated.
This DVD investigates how genius can be found in both strategy and tactics, in both ‘the big picture’ and in the daily horrors of war.
