British WWII Classic Movies
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.

I saw the movie “The Dam Busters” years ago and it was really good. I’ve also liked Sir Richard Attenborough and John Mills. Since Grahame Greene wrote one of the movies, it will probably be a good story. World War II history is still so fascinating.

My husband & I would love to watch all five of these great war movies. My father was an army medic during WWII & my husbands father served with the tank division during WWII. We have many pictures of both of them while they served their country.
I enjoy watching British films. I’ve always enjoyed movies with John Mills in them.
Thanks for the giveaway!
