The History of World War II, Vol. 1
Witness the Nazi onslaught as it rolls its way through Poland and then westward across Western Europe. We see the miracle of Dunkirk, the indomitable spirit of Winston Churchill, the horror of the Blitz, and the courage of the brave RAF pilots who fought to preserve England's freedom during the darkest days of the war.
The History of World War II, Vol. 2
Hitler's forces strike deep into the heart of the Soviet Union, and the Japanese attack Pearl Harbor. We then follow the decisive turning points of the war: Midway in the Pacific, El Alamein in North Africa, and Stalingrad on the eastern front. Collectively, these epic battles marked the turning of the tide and the beginning of the long road that would see allied troops finally march through Rome, Berlin, and Tokyo.
The History of World War II, Vol. 3
Beginning with the D-Day landings in Normandy, we follow the victorious allied troops as they liberate Paris, break through the Sigfried line and cross the Rhine at Remagen. In the Pacific we see the war draw ever closer to the Japanese homeland until eventually it is brought to a dramatic end with the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and then Nagasaki.
