Summary
This collection of World War Ii era propaganda series "Why We Fight" features three installments. The battle of Britain is an account of Great Britain's last stand against the forces of Nazi Germany, and the hard-fought but successful battle to maintain both air superiority and the Britons morale. The battle of Russia covers Russia's historic resistance to invasion, how those qualities were called upon in the war, and their determination to win against the seemingly invincible forces of Nazi Germany. The battle of China discusses China's history, and its people who use all their resources to oppose Japan's aggression, as well as why the Japanese want to conquer it
