Description by OLDIES.com:
The fiercest battles of WWII come to life as never seen before in this stunning collection of one of the most powerful epics in history. With actual footage from all sides of the war in color, this documentary takes you behind enemy lines and to the front lines of the tumultuous campaigns of the Atlantic, Mediterranean and Pacific theatres, where soldiers, sailors and airmen fought in the most defining time in the history of the modern world.
- Liberation Of Paris, August 1944: Following the Normandy invasion on D-Day, Allied troops join a growing French resistance to force the German military to withdraw from France after four years of occupation and repression.
- El Alamein, October 1942: British General Bernard Montgomery builds a major Allied force and begins an offensive on German and Italian Axis troops in North Africa. Cutting Axis supply lines and punishing their defenses, the Allies gain a decisive victory.
- Fall Of The Philippines, 1941-1942: One day after the attacks on Pearl Harbor, Japanese planes destroy much of the U.S. military installations in the Philippines. Japanese ground troops then force Filipino and American troops to Corregidor and Bataan, site of the notorious "Death March."
- Kwajalein, February 1944: U.S. troops seize the tiny coral island of Kwajalein from the Japanese as the Seabees begin constructing a strategic military base of operations, halfway between Hawaii and Japan.
