WENT THE DAY WELL?  (1942) 

One day during the Second World War, a unit of British soldiers arrive in the small, English village of Bramley End.  It's the Whitsun weekend, so life is even quieter than usual and there's almost no traffic of any kind.  At first, the villagers welcome the soldiers; but then doubts arise as to their purpose and actual identities.  It soon turns out these English soldiers are actually an advance guard of the Wehrmacht, sent to soften things up for an impending invasion.  The civilians attempt to escape and warn the local Home Guard, but are ambushed and shot by the Germans.  It's up to the residents of Bramley End to somehow escape and alert British forces about the invaders, but will they succeed in doing their part to protect the Empire?

TONIGHT WE RAID CALAIS  (1943) 

Geoffrey Carter, a British intelligence officer and commando, is sent to occupied France to blow up a munitions plant with the help of a farmer.  But the young saboteur has to contend with Odette Bonnard, a young French girl, who hates both the Germans and the British.
