You can take a step back in history, when you watch the British WWII classic movies in Their Finest Hour 5 disc blu-ray collection.
One of the movies was released during the war and the others followed in the 1950’s, while it was still fresh in the minds of the people who experienced it first hand.
This is a wonderful way to refresh your knowledge of history, so you can understand the impact of WWII in new ways.
