Fighting Allies 1941

9 mins United Kingdom Director. Louise Birt

One of several of films released after the Blitz, which focus on Britain’s Allies during the Second World War. As the threat of invasion to Britain’s shores began to diminish, film propaganda started to pay more attention to people of other nations that opposed Nazi Germany. A perspective which, it was suggested, might help to highlight the contrast between Nazism and free people everywhere.

The IWM Film Archive is the oldest film archive in the UK, holding over 20,000 hours of film, video and digital material and covering the two World Wars and all conflicts involving British or Commonwealth Forces since the start of the Twentieth Century to the present. Our collection also reflects aspects of civilian life in wartime, military life in peacetime, military exercises and operations.
