"These 26 Episodes will send chills racing up theispine." - Los Angeles Times More than 30 years after its initial broadcast, The World At War remains the definitive visual history of World War II. Unsurpassed in depth and scope, its 26 hour-long programs feature an extraordinary collection of newsreel, propaganda, and home-movie footage drawn from the archives of 18 nations, including color close-ups of Adolf Hitler taken by his mistress, that present an unvarnished perspective of the war's pivotal events: Penetrating interviews with eyewitness participants - from Hitler's secretary to Alger Hiss to ordinary citize ns who stood outside the battle lines - add spine-tingling, first-hand accounts to an already unforgettable viewing experience. Informative and unbiased, The World At War is the recipient of numerous accolades, including an International Emmy Award, the National Television Critics' Award for Best Documentary, and knighthood for its creator, Sir Jeremy Isaacs. Narrated by Academy Award winner Sir Laurence Olivier and digitally re-mastered for DVD, this is epic history at its absolute best.
