    A exceptional account of a unknown top secret part of WWII.  This details the role of the photo Interpreters and pilots that flew god knows how many missions taking photos's of the German War machine They provided 80 per cent of the intelligence that The Brit's had available and played a major role in the D-Day landings. The number of lives saved by them can be computed however most agree that the war would have lasted one to two years longer. The purpose of this unit was to fly P51s -(the best aircraft the British had, refit for cameras, higher speed, higher attitudes and range. There were no guns aboard these aircraft It is a film that will never be forgotten, once viewed and is a part of the unknown history of the War. It was well worth watching and thinking this was all dome during WWII and turned the tide in the allies favour..
