GREAT BATTLES OF WWII. 2-DVD video set. It lasted only six years, not long as history goes, but it produced the biggest armies, the most devastating weapons, it cost more and destroyed more than any other war. It put some seventy million people in uniform and killed perhaps as many as thirty million.
This collection tells the story of a number of battles fought in places most people had never heard about before the war: a stretch of beach, a remote island, a forest and places where the essential history of this enormous conflict was written.
This DVD set is by no means the whole story of World War II. Our aim is to show and recreate a feeling of what it meant to the people who were swept up by the war.
