"An extraordinary collection of newsreel, propaganda, and home-movie footage drawn from the archives of 18 nations, including color close-ups of Adolf Hitler taken by his mistress, that present an unvarnished perspective of the war's pivotal events. Penetrating interviews with eyewitness participants - from Hitler's secretary to Alger Hiss to ordinary citizens who stood outside the battle lines - and spine-tingling, first-hand accounts to an already unforgettable experience."--Container.

Although AQUILEA's criticisms are valid, this series has a grim authority that stays in the mind, long after lesser documentaries have faded. It benefits from being made by people who actually lived through World War II, and from the narration of Sir Laurence Olivier, who was never more brilliant.
