Synopsis by Rose of Sharon Winter
World War II changed forever the face and fate of the world's lands and peoples. This four-volume set, narrated by Glenn Ford, relives some of the war's most important moments. The story is told through the remembrances of some well-known Americans, including Gerald Ford, Robert Dole, and William Manchester. This episode chronicles the turn of the tide in the war, when Hitler's army suffered staggering losses in Russia, the Japanese were beaten back in the Pacific, and the Allied Forces joined to fight the Battle of the Bulge, and launched the massive offensive at Normandy. Personal recollections are accompanied by archival news clips and photographs.
