World War II was one of the most devastating conflicts in history, and its effects are still being felt. This 6 DVD, 11-hour collection from the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration takes you back to a time when the American spirit shone bright despite the darkness of war that hung over the world. Included are the following:

-Let There Be Light- John Huston’s film that was at one time banned by the Army has been hailed as one of the greatest war films of all time. Two more of his controversial films featuring combat footage are also included in this collection, including an Academy Award® winner.

-Before They Became Generals: Eisenhower, Patton, MacArthur and Bradley- They were four of America s greatest leaders. What were they like as boys? How did they become generals? And what made them so great? Four films hold the answers plus compelling footage of them during the war.

-Understanding the Men and Women of WWII- Who were the men and women that made up what Tom Brokaw called the “greatest generation?” They were our fathers, mothers, grandparents, siblings, aunts and uncles. Experience the unity of Americans in a time of tragedy with 21 films that transport you back to what life was like on the home front during World War II.

All told, 11 hours of incredible films and footage are in this collection, including unbelievable footage of men in actual combat, from the D-Day invasion to the fighting in the Philippines.

Powerfully narrated by Ronald Reagan, Katharine Hepburn, Walter Huston, Ginger Rogers, Walter Matthau, Walter Cronkite and more!
