Adolf Hitler. Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Benito Mussolini. Winston Churchill. Charles de Gaulle. George Patton. Before they were the giants of WWII, they were infantrymen and privates in WWI, the “war to end all wars.” The World Wars™ from HISTORY® and H2® brings you the story of the devastating three decades of 20th-century world war through the eyes of the men whose characters were forged in the trenches before they commanded a world on the brink of disaster. See how, from Ypres and the Somme to the Battle of the Bulge and the invasion of Normandy, the iconic figures of WWII became synonymous with either battlefield glory or murderous fascism.

    I bought a copy for others after I watched it because there was a lot of information about the World Wars that I have never heard before. It was very interesting!

        A great look at how WW1 set up WW2

        By 

        from Somewhere, USA

        Verified Buyer

        This documentary primarily focuses on the main characters involved with the two world wars - Roosevelt, Stalin, Hitler, Mussolini, and Churchill - how they began as young leaders in WW1, how those events foredoomed another world war, and these same prominent characters as generals and presidents in WW2. This would be great to show to a class because rather than elaborating on the battlefield combat it explains how it all happened in the first place so one reaches a comfortable understanding of the world wars.

          Saw this documentary when it aired on the History Channel, and streamed it online to my 8th grade Social Studies class last year. They enjoyed it as much as I did. Just had to buy a copy for future uses. The videos were well made and are easy for students to follow.
          *** My only gripe is that the "Digital HD" copy that is advertised on the cover and the photo in the History Channel shop, is not an iTunes copy but an Ultraviolet copy. but thats just my personal preference, to have all my movies organized in iTunes and streamable from my apple tv. ***

              WE were so excited to see that this wonderful mini series was finally available on DVD and Blu-Ray. This program showed me MANY things I was unaware of, especially how the two World Wars were connected!! My daughter, a history major, was not able to watch this when it was aired in May 2014, so this is one of her Christmas presents!! (she will love it I am sure!)

                  This video moves along at a nice pace, explaining the events and people of that period and gives a real sense of life during the world wars.

                        My husband and I love history, especially American history. This was better than any history class (memorizing names, dates, and places). It reveals the character of all the participants of our thirty year war. Even though it's better to read "original documents" of these men, the series invites you to do just that. Loved it!

                        I am a huge history buff of WWII, and this tells the background stories of all the major leaders of the time including Hitler and how he came to be the Monster he was. Starts out in WWI and goes to the end of WWII. very comprehensive and well acted.

                                  An excellent overview of the two World Wars including most importantly how WWI made the leaders, both good and bad, of WWII. The actors portraying the leaders, Churchill, FDR, Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini, are almost indistguishable from their counterparts. This series makes for a great overview and compliments the more detailed series such as Battle 360, Patton 360, and WWII 360. Highly recommend this series to those interested in WWI, WWII History.
