Two British titles you should definitely look at are THINGS TO COME (1935)
and, though it's a little bit outside your period, CONQUEST OF THE AIR
(1941).  There are numerous newsreels (mainly Gaumont-British and
Movietone) dealing with rearmament, an issue which was crucial to Stanley
Baldwin's campaign in the 1935 election, and more obviously, Chamberlain's
negotiations with the Nazis.
