RAF's Four-Engine Heavy Bomber of WWII
This DVD is about the Amazing RAF British Avro Lancaster Bomber. The Lancaster Bomber was an amazingly big and strong 4 engine bomber design and used very effectively, by the British to bomb Germany into submission by night. By the wars end, the Lancaster was dropping the biggest bombs of the war. The bomb was called the "Earthquaker" because of it's massive weight and damage.. It was a mammoth bomb weighing 22,000 Lbs. It was these bombs that also sunk the mighty battleship Tirptz. We hope that you will enjoy this DVD.

7th Film; "A Message from Malta". This is a story most folks don't know about. The battle for Malta. The British held out for over a year with the folks of Malta in great defiance to German Luftwaffe and Hitler. With only a few RAF planes to fight back and very limited supplies, the Island held. Hitler was furious and bombed the island almost daily, but the Brits and the islanders held on. Amazing story. Runtime 11:20 Min's
8th film; "Sea Port". This film was so amazing to me when I first saw it, I thought I just had to put in this DVD for folks to see it. It is about British coastal concrete pillboxes of WW2.,Built in the sea to defend the Mainland against enemy aircraft, it was completely surrounded by water. The fort had to be self-reliant. IE, Food, Sleeping quarters, generators, etc. This film is that short story of such a fort. I looked it on Wiki, but there is nothing there about it. Runtime 6:42 Min's
