Summary: I. "Send troops your books." Civilians are urged to hand in at their local post office any books or periodicals which they wish to donate to the forces at home and overseas.
II. "The other man's job. Rockets give fighter planes new punch." Scenes of the manufacture of components for the rocket projectors and shells used by Typhoons. Detailed views of the projector, then of the filling of shell cases with a mixture of solid and liquid TNT. At an airfield rockets are fitted beneath the wings of Typhoons (Invasion stripe markings) which take off and attack enemy ground targets.
III. "Greatest airborne invasion." Some of the 1500 troop-carriers, tug-planes and gliders carrying the Airborne Army over the Rhine take off, cross the English and Dutch coasts, then descend "taking the Nazis by surprise." View from a liberated Dutch town shows the air armada passing overhead. Description of operation as successful is not supported by any film shot on the ground.
