Description

This 50-minute DVD, produced by Atoll Productions with the support of the RAF Historical Society, tells the story of a secret Anglo-Soviet air operation following the German invasion of Russia in June 1941. At Stalin’s request, Churchill sent a Royal Air Force Wing with Hurricane fighter aircraft on board the first Arctic convoy to Russia in August 1941. Its purpose was to protect the strategic port of Murmansk – the vital supply route to the Soviet Union for the remainder of World War Two.

This little-known story is recounted through interviews with surviving veterans, unique archive footage and stills, and comment from historians Antony Beevor and Richard Overy.
