German Bombers

At the outbreak of World War Two, German forces were recognised as
the best equipped and most efficient in the world.
The early successes of the Blitzkrieg campaign, however, disguised
some fundamental deficiencies, especially in the Luftwaffe.
Throughout the conflict, The Third Reich lacked an effective bomber
and by the time this flaw was addressed it was too late.
The price Germany and Hitler would pay for not investing in four-engine
long range bombers would be enormous, and a major factor to the
outcome of the war.
This DVD documentary, narrated by Graham McTavish, features colour
stills, informative graphics and rare archive footage.
Note: it can be annoying listening to the German commentary,while you hear
the original (English) commentary in the background.
