Genre: Documentary, History
Premise: Previously unseen footage from World War II, culled from archives and private collections and converted to high-definition, offers insight on the lives of some of the soldiers, medics and journalists who lived through the war. Stars like LL Cool J, Justin Bartha and Rob Lowe give voice to the wartime diaries and journals of those people whose lives were turned upside-down by the chaos. The veterans, themselves, offer first-hand accounts of the experiences.
