Synopsis:
'The War', directed and produced by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, explores the history and horror of the Second World War from an American perspective by following the fortunes of the so-called ordinary men and women who became caught up in one of the greatest -cataclysms in human history. This epic 14-hour series focuses on the stories of citizens from four geographically distributed American towns: Waterbury, Connecticut; Mobile, Alabama; Sacramento, California; and the tiny farming town of Luverne, Minnesota. These four communities stand in for any town in the United States that went through the war's devastating years.
Individuals from each community take the viewer through their own personal and quite often harrowing journeys into war, painting vivid portraits of how the war dramatically altered their lives and those of their neighbours, as well as the country they helped to save for generations to come.
