Back in 1969, Sean Connery’s Goldfinger director Guy Hamilton and James Bond movie producer Harry Saltzman teamed up for a World War II epic.

Battle of Britain would recreate the 1940 British air campaign of the same name, during a crucial point in the fight against the Nazis.

Hitler had conquered France and was seeking a peace settlement with Great Britain, following the Allied evacuation from Dunkirk.

The German dictator sent in his Luftwaffe planes over the channel hoping to convince the new Prime Minister Winston Churchill to agree to this during their “darkest hour”.
