(See my other WWII related posts) – I came across this series on NetFlix a short time ago and have been enjoying the 13 episodes of the mini-series. The series has an 8.7/10 rating on IMDB. The series was released in 2009 and the synopsis per IMDB:

Recounts the events of World War II in color.

That is a very brief but direct statement. NetFlix says:

Rare footage, state-of-the-art colorization and newly uncovered documents are used in this examination of the strategies and battles of World War II.

 The episodes are each 51 minutes long and are titled:

  1. The Gathering Storm
  2. Lightning War
  3. Britain at Bay
  4. Hitler Strikes East Red Sun Rampant
  5. The Mediterranean and North Africa
  6. Turning the Tide
  7. The Soviet Steamroller
  8. Overlord
  9. Closing the Ring
  10. The Island War
  11. Victory in Europe
  12. Victory in the Pacific

If you are interested in the WWII era of history, you may find these two pages of mine of interest. 

The  World War II Sources” page is a constantly growing collection of more than 320 links to museums, memorials, websites, Facebook pages, Twitter feeds and other sources with information on the World War II era in history.

The “World War II Timeline” page expands almost daily and shows events leading up to WWII, as well as during the war. Events are broken down into the Pacific and European Theaters by date.

The “About WWII” page is a collection of links to posts that I have made over the years that are relevant to WWII.
