WWII In HDHDTV-14Closed Captioning

Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.


The only people to see the war like this were the ones who fought it. Until now… Seventy years in the making. Three thousand hours of color footage no one knew existed. The first documentary to show World War II from the perspective of both sides in full, immersive HD color, the world premiere HISTORY™ series WWII in HD uses the diaries of soldiers who fought in the war’s biggest battles to create a personal, introspective and detailed look at life on and off the front lines. Though it was illegal for U.S. soldiers to carry diaries, many hid them away in their packs and recorded their experiences in detail. Now, through the use of these diaries and other source documents, as well as HD color and on-location shooting around the world, WWII in HD transforms their journey into a tangible piece of history. Culled from rare color archival footage from an exhaustive worldwide search and converted to HD with meticulous technique, WWII in HD provides a picture of World War II as it has never been seen before.

Absolutely Amazing

This documentary does a great job of capturing the mindset of Americans before WWII, how much of a shock it was to be struck by the Japanese, the courage, and the importance of the decisions that were made. It is a great buy, Highly Recommended.


I highly recomend this to anyone who is interested in WW2 or who likes the history channel! Great job:)

WOW... It is as good as they say,

This project will be known as one of the best, if not the best, photo-documentary of the great war. Most all the footage I saw was "new" and in excellent color. It takes your breath away and I have seen most all the documentaries and films on the subject. Narratives are well done with a fitting score, intermixed with radio address of the period shown. BUY BUY BUY!
