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

Genocide, 1941-1945: From the very beginning of the Nazis' rise to power, the notion of the Aryan ideal was already in place. By the end of the war, the world would know the full horror of its ghastly vision.

Nemesis, Germany February-May 1945: As the Allies close in on Berlin, the Russians lose more than 100,000 men in battle. Hitler hides in his bunker and contemplates his own end.

Japan, 1941-1945: Initially apprehensive about the outcome of declaring war, the Japanese quickly turn to celebration with early victory. In the end, their worst fears are unimaginably exceeded.

Pacific, February 1942-July 1945: Under the command of General MacArthur and Admiral Nimitz, the Allies slowly but assuredly achieve victory in the Pacific, one island at a time.  Read more...
