WORLD WAR II: THE 3-FILM COLLECTION from HISTORY® offers three perspectives to deconstruct the deadliest conflict in human history. WWII in HD, the first documentary to show original color footage of WWII in sharply enhanced high definition, brings the conflict to life with journals and accounts of those who served in the war's biggest battles. Seventy years in the making, the film creates a personal, introspective and detailed look at life on and off the front lines through the eyes and words of 12 unforgettable Americans. In the critically acclaimed WWII in HD: The Air War, you'll feel the fear and exhilaration of a battlefield 30,000 feet in the air, as you accompany the U.S. Air Force on aerial missions fighting for control of the skies. From the devastation of the Blitz in Britain to the final dogfights over Europe, extraordinary archival footage — in color and in HD for the first time — re-creates historic fights like never before. And in WWII from Space, you'll witness the war through an all-seeing CGI eye offering a "satellite" view from above. Highlighting the war's ten key tipping points, the film places major events in global perspective while illustrating the hidden ripple effects of crucial incidents. HISTORY® breaks new ground with this extraordinary collection.
