Summary
  • An historical collection of the words and film footage of World War II featuring interviews with statesmen and military leaders of the time
  • Alone, May 1940-May 1941: Though the Battle of Dunkirk successfully rescues nearly 75,000 Allied troops from certain defeat, London's only respite from constant bombing comes when Hitler turns toward Russia
  • Barbarossa, June-December 1941: Having blitzkrieged through Europe, the German panzers plow deep into Russian territory, only to be stopped by a brutal winter and endless mud
  • Banzai! Japan 1931-1942: Japan attacks Pearl Harbor and brings America into the war while sweeping its way across the Pacific theater
  • On our way, U.S.A. 1939-1942: Americans are divided between fighting the Japanese and the Nazis. Hitler solves the conflict by declaring wars on the States
