Inside World War II
The soldiers of World War II knew that every day could be their last. Still, they kept fighting ? and they kept dying. Inside World War II is the intimate story of the last global war, told by the survivors ? those who endured the front line's bloody conflicts.
The entire documentary is a collection of authentic images, all in color, of which a lot have been previously unreleased. Some images can be quite shocking at times and no doubt leave you with a bitter impression on how horrible war can be. The commentator also reads out a lot of letters or diary fragments from people who lived or died during World War II. Knowing this, you might think that the documentary in a whole would loose coherence but it's quite the opposite because even though "Inside World War II" is mainly a collection of authentic images and letters it felt like everything fitted together very well.
About all the major events which happened during the period 1936-1945 are included. For example the German invansion in Poland and France, the bombing of London, Pearl Harbor, the confrontation between the American fleet and the German U-boats, Stalingrad, the American invasions of the Japanese islands, D-day, the Holocaust, Japanese Kamikazes, Hiroshima, ... it's all there.
