For the first time ever, the most influential documentaries on World War II are available in one comprehensive collection.
Academy Award winner Laurence Olivier narrates the definitive history of World War II, THE WORLD AT WAR. Hailed by The New York Times as “Superb...Magnificent television,” this 22-hour masterpiece explores virtually every facet of the war: planning, politics, battle, occupation and genocide. Featuring incisive interviews with key Allied and Axis leaders, including Albert Speer, Lord Mountbatten, Alger Hiss, Toshikazu Kase and many others, THE WORLD AT WAR is a devastating chronicle of battle.
The Emmy® and Peabody® Award-winning VICTORY AT SEA — considered the most influential documentary in television history — captures every major naval engagement of the war, from U-boat wolf packs to Iwo Jima and Okinawa. Featuring a score by Academy Award® winning composer Richard Rogers, narrated by Leonard Graves and hosted by Peter Graves, VICTORY AT SEA, in the words of Harper’s Weekly, “created a new art form.”
THE CENTURY OF WARFARE frames WWII within the context of the war-torn 20th Century. From the precursors of World War I to the liberation of Kuwait, this encyclopedic documentary utilizes a vast archive of historical footage to explore every major engagement of 100 years of combat.
