World War II was the largest and most destructive war ever waged on earth, engulfing every corner of the globe. Walter Cronkite, who first distinguished himself as a war correspondent on the front lines of this conflict, presents a stunning collection which chronicles WWII in the Pacific. Filled with gripping combat footage, this collection takes you from the rise of militarism in Japan to the delirious celebrations on VJ day. From the trenches to the skies, here is the story of the campaigns and the commanders, the horror and the heroism of World War II in the Pacific. This three DVD box set has been reproduced from the original 22 hour CBS News production of "World War II with Walter Cronkite" that first ran in 1982.
