Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The documentary The War explores the history and horror of World War II from an American perspective by following the fortunes of so-called ordinary men and women who became caught up in one of the greatest cataclysms in human history. This epic film focuses on the stories of citizens from four American towns taking the viewer through their personal and harrowing journeys, painting vivid portraits of how the war dramatically altered their lives.

Review:

"A towering film. Ken Burns's finest work. America's best documentary filmmaker has vividly captured the very best generation of Americans. Just as the men and women of World War II answered the call and saved the world, Ken Burns has created a monument to their sacrifice and bravery." Brian Williams, anchor and managing editor NBC Nightly News
