"I purchased this two DVD set thinking it contained "The Battle of Britain" and "The Dam Busters", two movies about the RAF in WWII. This was an incorrect assumption - neither of those movies is available on DVD. This set consists of two short documentaries. The Dam Busters Raid is actually fairly interesting, and covers the Ruhr dam raids, and the development of the bombs that were used. It's a pretty good look at the subject.The Battle of Britain is mostly about the Spitfire, and its development, rather than the actual battle. A lot of the running time is taken up with footage of the air show commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Battle of Britain. Nifty if you want to watch footage of 50 years of RAF planes zooming around to music with little commentary, but otherwise just filler."
Dam Busters and BOB available

"A previous reviewer mentioned that the Dam Busters and Battle of Britain movies are not available. The Battle of Britain is available domestically. The Dam Busters is available via the Amazon.UK WEB site (I purchased it along with a number of other great Brit WW2 movies - The British DVD War Collection is particularly good). You must set your region code on your DVD equipment to read European DVDs. My solution was to set my PC DVD drive to read the European regional code. Both of these documentaties listed on Amazon (US) are OK as well."
