World War Two by Drone (2021): S01E05 – Battle for the Skies


In this six-part series, battlefield historians and military experts utilise cutting edge, drone mounted technology to re-examine some of the second world war’s most iconic sites.

Also known as WW2 from Above, WWII by Drone, and World War 2 by Drone.


World War II was the first war in history in which air power played a critical role. Control of the skies meant control of the war, and both Allied and Axis forces pushed science and engineering to the limits to gain the upper hand. Today, aerial drone footage along with cutting edge Lidar technology is being used to uncover evidence of military aviation innovations that played major roles in the Battle of Britain, the London Blitz, the air war over Berlin, and other key conflicts of the European campaign.
