Set against the backdrop of world events that led to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbour in 1941, "The Winds of War" stars Robert Mitchum as Victor "Pug" Henry, a career naval officer who, along with his family, learns to navigate the waters of his dangerous times in the late 1930s. While Germany expands and proceeds to seize several border countries, Italy attempts to establish a Fascist Colonial Empire under Mussolini and Japan prepares for a major battle with China. Meanwhile, the Henry clan finds itself drawn into the centre of the conflict as they deal with the drama, romance, tragedy and heroism that lead to America's involvement in World War II.

Great story well told - The Winds of War review by NS

Spoiler Alert
Updated 05/02/2021

Having read the books by Herman Wouk I was intrigued to see that there was a 'mini series'. The DVD come with I assume episodes run together and is spread over several DVDs. (only seen 3 so far) As the author of the book wrote the screen play the dialogue is often word for word the same and no story quirks that I noticed, which is good because its a great story. I found Robert Mitchum a bit incongrous as the lead as he is a bit old for the part, but this is from the era when it was deemed ok to have much older (male) romantic leads. That aside it was well cast and very enjoyable, giving a really good flavour for the parts of the world covered, USA, Italy, Warsaw, Berlin and the UK. The bomber flight over Berlin was very well done.
