Summary
  • An historical collection of the words and film footage of World War II featuring interviews with statesmen and military leaders of the time
  • New Germany, 1933-1939: With Germany buckling under the weight of humiliating defeat and unprecedented economic depression, Adolf Hitler and the Nazis quickly gain power and momentum, while Poland and the rest of the world looks on nervously
  • Distant war, September 1939-May 1940: Germany's invasion of Poland forces Britain into war, and the island nation's early defeat brings Winston Churchill into power. Meanwhile, France is next on Hitler's list
  • France falls, May-June 1940: France discovers it is woefully unprepared for modern warfare as the Nazi war machine easily skirts around the Maginot Line. Britain retreats and prepares for invasion
  • Bonus documentary, the making of the series: As compelling as the landmark 26-episode television documentary it celebrates, this is a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at the individuals, the technology, and historical resources that made this still-relevant examination of World War II such a powerful and unforgettable visual experience
