Product Description

Product Description

The only people to see the war like this were the ones who lived it. Until now…

Seventy years in the making. Three thousand hours of color footage few knew existed. The first documentary to show original color footage of World War II in immersive HD, the world premiere HISTORY™ series WWII IN HD uses the journals and accounts of those who served in the war’s biggest battles to create a personal, introspective and detailed look at life on and off the front lines. Follow 12 unforgettable Americans, and experience the war through their eyes, in their own words, as it really looked and sounded. WWII IN HD transforms their stirring journey into a tangible piece of history. Culled from rare color film found in a two-year worldwide search and converted to HD with meticulous technique, WWII IN HD provides a picture of World War II as it has never been seen before.

Also included is The Battle for Iwo Jima, an immersive look at the momentous battle using gloriously restored, full-color footage, some of which has never seen before. HISTORY details the entire action of the battle, from the first landing of a crippled B-29 to the conflict’s bloody conclusion in a jungle of lava rocks.

This collection also features WWII in HD: The Air War, the untold story of the American 8th Air Force's bloody battle to defeat the German Luftwaffe in the months leading up to D-Day. Told through the gripping, first person accounts of three American airmen and Stars & Stripes reporter Andy Rooney, this special showcases breathtaking aerial combat--original, color footage, never before seen by most Americans--of the B-17s Flying Fortresses, P-47 Thunderbolts and P-51 Mustangs on missions such as Regensburg, Schweinfurt and Berlin. The 8th Air Force suffered more than 26,000 combat deaths--more than the US Marines lost in all of World War II.

BONUS FEATURES: Two feature-length WWII in HD specials: The Battle for Iwo Jima and WWII in HD: The Air War; Character Profiles; Behind-the-Scenes Featurettes - Finding the Footage, Preserving the Footage

3.0 out of 5 stars WWII HD Feb. 4 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Although it was informative and quite interesting I found it a little too American propaganda-ish for my taste but overall a good buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superbe! Jan. 2 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've watched many WWII documentaries and this was by far the most moving. The quality of the sound, music and video is excellent! Very good naration by all members, such as Rob Lowe and LLcool J. And obviously the actual Veterans who open the vault to all those traumatic events they survived. Being a soldier myself, I definitly recommend this collection. It walks you through all the different fronts the Allies fought in chronological order, with nice details and locations with specific timmings...
Anyways I love it!

1.0 out of 5 stars Not what I was looking for June 10 2014
I was, and am still looking for, and thought I bought the documentary narrated by Robert Powell. This one is such a disappointment that I can't even watch it.
