The War: A Deadly Calling

August 1, 2012 - 10:30 pm

The War, a seven-part documentary series directed and produced by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, explores the history and horror of the Second World War from an American perspective by following the fortunes of so-called ordinary men and women who become caught up in one of the greatest cataclysms in human history.

Look at War World II from November 1943-June 1944 as four veterans recount their own stories. Americans get their first real glimpse at the toils of war when Life publishes a photograph of the bodies of three GIs killed in action at Buna, African-American soldiers start demanding rights in the midst of segregated battle units, and Allied forces eventually liberate Rome after being stalled in the mountains south of Rome.
