WWII In HD: Collector's Edition

The only people to see the war like this were the ones who lived it. Until now...

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 war's biggest battles to create a personal, introspective and detailed look at life on and off the front lines. Follow 12 unforgettable Americans, and experience the war through their eyes, in their own words, as it really looked and sounded. WWII In HD transforms their stirring journey into a tangible piece of history. Culled from rare color film found in a two-year worldwide search and converted to HD with meticulous technique, WWII In HD provides a picture of World War II as it has never been seen before.

Also included is The Battle for Iwo Jima, an immersive look at the momentous battle using gloriously restored, full-color footage, some of which has never seen before. History details the entire action of the battle, from the first landing of a crippled B-29 to the conflict's bloody conclusion in a jungle of lava rocks.

This collection also features WWII In HD: The Air War, the untold story of the American 8th Air 's bloody battle to defeat the German Luftwaffe in the months leading up to D-Day. Told through the gripping, first person accounts of three American airmen and Stars & Stripes reporter Andy Rooney, this special showcases breathtaking aerial combat - original, color footage, never before seen by most Americans - of the B-17s Flying Fortresses, P-47 Thunderbolts and P-51 Mustangs on missions such as Regensburg, Schweinfurt and Berlin. The 8th Air suffered more than 26,000 combat deaths - more than the US Marines lost in all of World War II.
