A multi-volumed documentary mini-series, "The World at War" covers the entire history of World War II from the causes of the 1920s to the aftermath of the Cold War in the 1950s. Emphasis is also placed on several inside story episodes, where events are covered which occurred inside Germany and Japan such as resistance to Hitler, life in general under a dictatorial regime, and particular emphasis is focused on the Jewish Holocaust.Written by

Although the invasion of the Soviet Union is often portrayed as a mistake and a turning point in the war, in reality Adolf Hitler could not continue the war against the British Empire without vastly increased reserves of oil and grain. He was forced to turn east after the failure to defeat the UK in 1940-41, in order to seize the natural resources. See more »
From the very begining of the first episode when Sir Laurence Olivier described the horrific events in Oradour-Sur-Glane 'The day the soldiers came'. To the final days of the war when the mushroom clouds appeared over Japan, I never missed a second of this classic series and I remember it well even though it was screened way back in 1974. This whole series should be compulsory viewing for as many of the worlds children as possible so that the tragedy of WW2 is not repeated and that bigotry, hatred, greed and intolerance are not confused with patriotism or religious zeal.
