In this fascinating 10-part documentary series, compelling interviews with veterans who fought during the most defining time in the history of the modern world recount personal experiences and provide an extraordinary new perspective on the greatest military struggle the world has ever endured. Rare and, in some cases, previously unseen war footage from archives all over the world have been assembled in this poignant and sometimes harrowing documentary which captures the heart and spirit of the 20th Century's greatest conflict.
1939-1945. Six years. Within the scope of history, six years is a relatively short period of time. But these six years entirely changed the world - producing battles and shaping lives beyond anything civilized man had ever known. Thirty-five million people died in this war and many of them were never in uniform. As for the men in uniform, these soldiers witnessed incredible events and performed duties that redefined bravery. There was no ambiguity regarding good and evil. When it all finally came to an end, the whole planet had to look forward to see what the future would bring, but they also had to look back to see what the world had learned.
