Synopsis:
The definitive story of the second world war.

Desert Victory
In rare archive footage, 'Desert Victory' tells the story of the Desert Rats. These were the heroic men of the Eighth Army who, on the 23rd October 1942, left the holes that they had scratched in the rock and sand of the western desert and moved forward to destroy Rommel's advance. This remarkable film provides a fascinating insight into the tactics and personalities of the Desert Rats as they made their critical defence of Suez.
Pearl Harbour Revisited
December 7th 1941 is a day that America will never forget. 'Pearl Harbour' looks in detail at the two ships that have since become memorials - USS Utah and USS Arizona. This sensitive exploration of the events surrounding the tragedy at Pearl Harbour features film footage and photographs of the time alongside interviews with survivors.
The Last Bomb
Taken from US War Department films of the time, the moving footage was shot by US Army Air Forces combat camera units in the air battles over Japan. Featuring close-ups of the planes and fascinating portraits of the forces that crewed them, the film contains powerful aerial footage taken from US bombers in action.
