Wings Over Germany covers one of the most dramatic periods in recent history, the first part of WWII when the Germany suddenly invades Poland, then Denmark, Norway, Belgium, the Low Countries, and France. The speed of the advance shocks the British. By the summer of 1940 they faced, alone, the seemingly unstoppable German military machine.


RAF Squadron Leader Allan Chadwick is swept up with demands on his technical and flying skills, he commands a Spitfire squadron during the Battle of Britain and despairs when he is forced to lead barely qualified pilots against the battle-hardened Luftwaffe. On a bombing raid he bales out over occupied France, evades the Germans and makes an audacious escape back to England. A daring, low level attack on Berlin in a Mosquito fighter bomber earns Chadwick the personal enmity of Herman Göring who extracts a bitter revenge. Chadwick comes close to ending his flying career when he shoots down the first V-1 to penetrate British air space.
