    It is interesting! It's the important shipping routes of Germany, the Royal Navy blockaded it forcing them to transport vital Iron Ore overland. That left them open to partisan attacks.

    The map got more interesting as it developed because it showed how Britain was going to risk a war with the Soviet Union and Germany at the same time by taking Narvik, which would give Britain a supply point to drive supplies into Finland to help them against the Soviets.

    I personally like the -109 rolling off the production line picture the best. I've only just finished watching the second disc in the set, so we're set for some more pictures after these last ones off the first disc.

    The second disc has "Alone" - Britain standing alone May 1940 - 1941. Barbarossa - Invasion of Russia, June - December 1941. Banzai - Japan 1931 - 1942 and "On our Way" - America - 1939 - 1942. So, expect some good pacific theatre pictures, some BoB pictures...and Russian pictures...oh, and I haven't even taken some from the Fall of France, so expect some from there too...good gun cam on that episode.
