Summary:
An historical collection of the words and film footage of World War II featuring interviews with statesmen and military leaders of the time.

Inside the Reich, Germany 1940-1944: Initial victory in Europe turns sour after the defeat at Stalingrad, yet Germany prepares to fight to the end--even after an assassination attempt on the Fuhrer.

Morning, June-August 1944: On the morning of June 6, 1944, the Allies stage the largest human invasion in history on the beaches of Normandy. The human cost is enormous, and for the Germans, it is the beginning of the end.

Occupation, Holland 1940-1944: Though a neutral country, Holland is attacked by Germany without warning in 1940. During the next four years life carries on seemingly without incident, but underneath resistance never dies.

Pincers, August 1944-March 1945: The end of the war appears close at hand with the liberation of Paris in 1944, but the Americans and British disagree on how to advance. Meanwhile, Poland suffers devastating losses to achieve victory.  Read more...

An historical collection of the words and film footage of World War II featuring interviews with statesmen and military leaders of the time.

Inside the Reich, Germany 1940-1944: Initial victory in Europe turns sour after the defeat at Stalingrad, yet Germany prepares to fight to the end--even after an assassination attempt on the Fuhrer.

Morning, June-August 1944: On the morning of June 6, 1944, the Allies stage the largest human invasion in history on the beaches of Normandy. The human cost is enormous, and for the Germans, it is the beginning of the end.

Occupation, Holland 1940-1944: Though a neutral country, Holland is attacked by Germany without warning in 1940. During the next four years life carries on seemingly without incident, but underneath resistance never dies.
