Described by one wartime viewer as “a thoroughly absorbing film”, ‘ACK ACK’ is an insight to what it was like for the soldiers who manned anti-aircraft guns on Britain’s home front. Their experiences ranging from the high intensity of an air raid, to the less frantic periods, where they appear relaxed enough to read, play music, a game of chess or pool and even socialise with a drink.
