The Allies take the offensive as the tide of war turns against the Axis in the Mediterranean and in Europe. The fury of war in the air takes a heavy toll on attacker and defender alike but the undermanned and outgunned Luftwaffe is defiant in the face of certain defeat. Fighter Aces of World War II is the most comprehensive history series ever produced on the subject, featuring amazing air combat footage and firsthand accounts of the greatest air battles the world has ever known. Each episode includes extraordinary air combat footage shot at the height of raging dogfights. Surviving Fighter Aces from all sides of the conflict - from Japan, Germany, Britain, Russia, Canada, Australia and the United States - provide vivid and graphic firsthand accounts of what it was really like to be a fighter pilot in some of the greatest air battles the world has ever known.
