Summary
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.
