Editorial Reviews

Narrated by Sir Laurence Olivier, "The World at War" draws upon an extraordinary collection of WWII footage from newsreels, propaganda films, and home movies--including rare footage of Hitler taken by Eva Braun--gathered from both the victorious and the conquered. You'll hear interviews with those who were eyewitnesses to history: journalists, housewives, soldiers, and historians, as well as survivors of Pearl Harbor, Hiroshima, and Dresden. Previously released on 26 tapes, this landmark boxed set is now on 9 cassettes or 5 DVDs and includes 2 bonus programs. Color and b&w, 26 hours.
