School for Danger S.O.E. & the French Resistance Fight the German Occupation - 1944 This is one the most exciting World War 2 espionage films you'll see. What's unique is that the characters play themselves performing the roles they executed during World War 2 -- from British secret agents to French Resistance fighters to special mission RAF pilots and operational commanders. This remarkable film on British S.O.E.(Special Operations Executive) wartime espionage operations in occupied France was shot on location after the Liberation. The film is a composite re-creation of actual operations combined into one story line. (Get this video & more on our World War 2 Resistance Fighters DVD)

That meant that the ability get US air forces on their way quickly and efficiently was absolutely essential for survivability, striking power and deterrence. A critical element in this quick response was "MITO" - "Minimum Interval Take-Off. (Get this video & more on our B-58 Hustler - Volume 2 DVD)
