Description

From the makers of the BAFTA award-winning Britain At War In Colour comes this major new series America's Was - World War II In Colour. Combining intimate witness accounts with rare colour film it tells the story of America during The Second World War.

America's War - World War II In Colour is a personal and intimate account of a nation fighting to prevail in the greatest conflict in human history. The involvement of the United States in the conflict escalated the war dramatically to global proportions. The nations of fascist occupied Europe and Asia looked to the United States to help secure their liberty. American resources, manpower and morale did bring victory - but at a terrible price.

The battle of the Atlantic, Pearl Harbour, US bombing raids of Germany, the invasion of North Africa, June 1944 D-Day, the war in the Pacific and Hiroshima are amongst the events explored in this series.
