Do any of you guys that do axis -especially Luftwaffe- know the name of the march music featured in the opening credits of the movie " The Battle of Britain "? -I've always loved that tune and I can never find a name or credit for it.  0|

I've yet to check further into it.  I guess I'm just assuming that the tune I have in mind is a German march from the period.  Thanx for the input!

I am thinking it's "Wenn wir fahren gegen Engelland" I think, guess. It's been 30 + years since I've seen it.

Thanks! Like I'd said, I've always loved that tune, and it's bugged me  that I couldn't find a name or credit for it
