We're marking the 80th anniversary of the start of World War II with this three day blogathon on films and TV series related to the war.
Maddy of Maddy Loves Her Classic Films was your hostess for Day 1 of the blogathon. I will be your host for Days 2 and 3.

I'm still putting the finishing touches to my post on The Bridge on the River Kwai, partly because I got distracted reading some of the blogathon entries yesterday. So for today I will offer two articles from the archives. Cliff Robertson flies into action with 633 Squadron, while James Mason stars as The Desert Fox.
I'll add the other entries for today as they come in.
