Collected edition of ten BBC documentaries about the Second World War. Each documentary provides a detailed examination of different aspects of the conflict, from the rise of the Nazi Party to the final battle in Berlin, and concludes with a chilling investigation into the political, social and military conditions that made the prosecution of the Nazi's 'Final Solution' against the Jewish population possible. Includes: 'The Nazis - A Warning From History'; 'The Road to War'; 'Dunkirk'; 'War of the Century'; 'Battle of the Atlantic'; 'Horror in the East'; 'Battlefields'; 'D-Day'; 'D-Day to Berlin' and 'Auschwitz'.
