Summary This documentary series painstakingly chronicles the final years of the Allied campaign during WWII, using a combination of first-person testimony and previously unseen archive footage. Honing in on personal experiences of frontline personnel, hear not only what it was like to be there, but also reveals how these experiences transformed the survivors as they moved from naive enthusiasm before D-Day, to grim determination by the end. It also shines light on the psychological consequences and emotional devastation that reverberated through to subsequent generations. (From the UK) (Documentary) PG (A) CC **New Episode**
