Using footage never before seen by most Americans–converted to HD for unprecedented clarity—viewers will experience the war as if they were actually there, surrounded by the real sights and sounds of the battlefields. Along the way, they'll meet a diverse group of soldiers whose wartime diaries and journals show in visceral detail what the war was really like.This visually astonishing landmark series presents the story of World War II through the eyes of 12 Americans who experienced the war firsthand.

They will meet Shelby Westbrook, a young African American from Toledo, who became a member of the famed Tuskegee Airmen; Jimmie Kanaya, the son of Japanese immigrants, who served in the U.S. Army and was imprisoned in Europe; and Jack Werner, a Jewish émigré who escaped from Austria before the war and wound up fighting not against Hitler and the hated Nazis, but in the Pacific Theater.Gary Sinise narrates this series.
