This film is about a British airplane squadron during the First World War. The Dawn Patrol shows aerial warfare in its infancy: the rickety planes, the dog fights, the poor training given to the British pilots, and the pressure on the officers who sent boys up every day knowing that many wouldn't come back.

Learning Guide Excerpt
To demonstrate how our Learning Guides can be used by teachers to improve lesson plans, we have set out below a paragraph from the Learning Guide to The Dawn Patrol.
Before World War I, balloons were used to observe enemy positions. Propeller driven planes were first used to observe enemy troops by the Italians in the Italo-Turkish War of 1911-12. The British established the Royal Flying Corps in 1912. At the beginning of World War I, the Allies and the Germans each had about 200 slow, vulnerable planes. These were soon replaced by faster planes. Early aerial combat was hampered by the fact that bullets from the machine gun mounted on the plane would strike the propeller. This was solved by Anthony Fokker, a Dutch aircraft designer working with the Germans. The Allies quickly matched this advance.
The Learning Guide to the film The Dawn Patrol contains sections on Benefits of the Movie, Possible Problems, Helpful Background, Discussion Questions, Links to the Internet, and Bridges to Reading. The Discussion Questions are divided into three categories: Subject Matter, Social-Emotional Learning, and Moral-Ethical Emphasis.
