World War II was the first major war that was fought in the air as much as it was fought on the ground. We witness some of the decisive air battles that shaped the course of World War II: the Battle of Britain, the Japanese Zeros versus the Hellcats and Corsairs at the Battle of Midway, the epic raid of the RAF "dam busters" on the Rhine dams, the eighth Air Force raid deep into Nazi territory against the Romanian oil fields in Ploesti, the epic fighter battle for the island of Malta, and the air battle that tipped the hand of victory in the clash between Soviet and German forces at Kursk. Using rare archival footage and previously unavailable footage, a stunning tribute to the brave pilots that fought the air wars of World War II.
