The recon material sat for decades, its unique view of important encounters unseen. Shot from aircraft high above the conflicts, it captures the intense action as Allied forces battled their enemies. Enriched with cutting-edge CGI graphics which create detailed contour maps of the battleground, THE LOST EVIDENCE® sheds new light on some of WWII's most important engagements.
Eleven months before D-Day, the Allies launched an unprecedented assault on Axis-controlled European territory. The target was the strategically vital Mediterranean island of Sicily and many of the Allied soldiers storming her shores were seeing combat for the first time. This was a true trial by fire. Success meant breaking Mussolini and weakening Hitler. Failure was unthinkable.
THE HISTORY CHANNEL® presents the Invasion of Sicily with all the vividness and exacting detail that 21st century computer renderings and rare archival materials can conjure.
LOST EVIDENCE: SICILY is a masterful retelling of a classic, world-changing campaign.
