Seventy years in the making. Three thousand hours of color footage few knew existed. The first documentary to show original color footage of World War II in immersive HD, the world premiere HISTORY series WWII IN HD uses the journals and accounts of those who served in the biggest battles to create a personal, introspective and detailed look at life on and off the front lines. This lavish gift set includes the original HISTORY series plus two specials: THE AIR WAR and IWO JIMA.
WWI - The Great War
History® is proud to present the definitive collection of documentary programs on World War One. Experience the world-changing events from the birth of what became known as The Great War to the tragic, final day where over 13,000 men died. In the four year period from 1914 – 1918, the war was responsible for over 40 million casualties and over 20 million deaths. Join the brave servicemen of land, sea, and air as they valiantly fought alongside their Allied brothers in this “war to end all wars.”
Conquest of America
After Columbus came conquest. From all corners of the world, explorers reached the shores of the New World to reap untold riches, seek new routes to the Far East, and gain the most elusive glory of all – a place in history. CONQUEST OF AMERICA brings a stunning four-part series from HISTORY to DVD. A sweeping saga of bravery, cruelty and pure folly, these are the stories of adventurers who stopped at nothing to conquer an unknown land and its people. Led by legendary cities of gold and mythical passages to China, foiled by international intrigue and mutiny on the high seas, men like Francisco Vasquez de Coronado, Henry Hudson, Jean Ribault and Vitus Bering left an indelible mark on a vast new continent. Straight from the explorers’ journals, European diaries and oral histories of Native Americans, CONQUEST OF AMERICA presents an amazing, region-by-region account of extraordinary times and men. Expert commentary and vivid on-site reenactments complete this epic course in history. Also included in this special DVD set are four bonus documentaries exploring the dramatic rise and fall of Christopher Columbus; the untold story of the Pilgrims’ desperate journey across the Atlantic; and the infamous struggles of the pioneers of Jamestown, the first permanent British settlement in North America. CONQUEST OF AMERICA contains 8 acclaimed documentaries on 4 DVDs.
