OVER 4 HOURS! From the trenches to the skies, this is the story of the horrors and heroism - of World War II in Europe. World War II was the largest and most destructive war ever fought. It engulfed every corner of the globe and 80% of the world's population. Europe: The World at War takes you from the rise of the Nazi war machine to the war for control of North Africa, and from Operation Overlord & D-Day to the celebrations on VE Day and the Nuremberg Trials.
