The 10 Definitive BBC Series That Have Shaped Our Understanding Of World War II.
How could a political party as fundamentally evil and overtly racist as the Nazis come to power? Why was Japan, known for its admirable treatment of POWs in WWI, responsible for such grim atrocities in the Second World War? This comprehensive collection not only examines the details of the conflict (the Battle of Moscow, the campaign against German U-boats, the RAF bomber offensive), but digs deeper to attempt to answer the questions that still haunt us. Through startling archive footage and eyewitness testimony, this 12-disc set offers a unique perspective and true understanding of what actually happened.

These 12 discs contain more than 30 hours of the following episodes - 1. The Nazis: A Warning from History, Parts 1-3 (150 minutes); 2. The Nazis: A Warning from History, Parts 4-6 (150 minutes); 3. The Road to War: Great Britain, Italy, Japan, USA (200 minutes); 4. Dunkirk (180 minutes); 5. War of the Century (200 minutes); 6. Battle of the Atlantic (150 minutes); 7. Horror in the East (100 minutes); 8. Battlefields (200 minutes); 9. D-Day: Reflections of Courage (90 minutes); 10. D-Day to Berlin (150 minutes); 11. Auschwitz: Inside the Nazi State, Parts 1-3 (150 minutes); 12. Auschwitz: Inside the Nazi State, Parts 4-6 (150 minutes).

Editor's Note
A comprehensive overview of the events of the Second World War are detailed in this exhaustive collection of facts, figures, and footage from the period. As a neat counterpoint to the historic story, many contemporary questions are raised and answered, making this thoroughly informative viewing for anyone not totally aware of everything that occurred. Likely to appeal to both academics and people who are interested in the subject, the BBC enhances its already sizeable reputation with this detailed History of one of the world's biggest conflicts.
