"BBC History Of World War II" - How could a political party as fundamentally evil and overtly racist as the Nazis come to power? Why was Japan, known for its admirable treatment of POWs in WWI, responsible for such grim atrocities in the Second World War? This comprehensive collection not only examines the details of the conflict (the Battle of Moscow, the campaign against German U-boats, the RAF bomber offensive), but digs deeper to attempt to answer the questions that still haunt us. Through startling archive footage and eyewitness testimony, this 12-disc set offers a unique perspective and true understanding of what actually happened. Includes Episodes From: "The Nazis - A Warning from History" (1997); "The Road to War" (1989); "Dunkirk" (2004); "War of the Century: When Hitler Fought Stalin" (1999); "The Battle of the Atlantic" (2002); "Horror in the East" (2000); "Battlefields" (2001); "D-Day: Reflections of Courage" (2004); "D-Day to Berlin" (2004); "Auschwitz: Inside the Nazi State" (2005).
