This is a great movie about the RAF's Bomber Command in WW II. It has a superb cast and the photography is exquisite. Although there are no aerial action scenes, wartime tension dominates every frame. Especially well handled are the rivalry and competition between the British Airmen and their American counterparts from the 8th Air Force. This is a must view for those who are interested in the Allied Air Crews who fought in the Air War over Fortress Europa during the bleak years from 1939-1944. The secret? "Keep Calm and Carry On."
