WWII – THE LOST ARCHIVES
World War II as the soldiers saw it--in color--in this extraordinary DVD set narrated by John Thaw (Inspector Morse).
World War II has been the subject of countless books and documentaries, but none has ever shown the epic conflict like this. Drawing exclusively from color footage obtained from sources throughout the world, this epic DVD set shows the conflict the way the soldiers saw it. Adding to the immediacy of this important collection is a treasury of personal memories culled from letters and diaries, expressing the fears doubts, thrills, and anguish of those who lived and died in the epic conflict. The result is an intimate account of the experience of war, rather than a tired battlefield history.
1. A New World Order--Follow the events that led up to the outbreak of war in Europe, and watch as the German Blitzkrieg rolls through Poland and France.
2. Total War--From Pearl Harbor through the days before the D-Day invasion, see how the war really looked over the skies of Germany, in the jungles of the Pacific and on the storm-tossed seas of the North Atlantic.
3. Triumph and Despair--See incredible, graphic footage of the D-Day invasion, experience V-E Day in London and feel what it was like to be at ground zero when the atom bomb fell on Japan.
