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.
Watch the events of War World II from December 1944-March 1945 as veterans recount their own stories. The war is dragging on and America is getting weary of hearing gruesome news from abroad. Some soldiers have been fighting for three years, and though they are close to enemy lines, the possibility of victory is still a question. Two soldiers – Tom Galloway of Mobile, Burnett Miller of Sacramento and Ray Leopold of Waterbury – tell their stories of the biggest battle on the Western Front — the Battle of the Bulge.
