An unprecedented look at the war that destroyed cities, shattered countries and ended tens of millions of lives. Apocalypse: The Second World War, draws from over 600 hours of footage - much of it never seen by the public.
More than six hundred hours of video taken by front-line soldiers, top-secret operatives, resistance fighters, and private citizens have been declassified and restored in full-color high definition. This six-part series, containing never-before-seen footage, will forever change the way we look at the Second World War.
