This three-time Emmy® Award winner is the most extensive and comprehensive collection of color footage of World War II ever seen, covering the invasion of Normandy to the fall of Berlin. When Academy Award®-winning director George Stevens was asked by General Eisenhower to film the war, he organized a team which became known as "The Stevens' Irregulars," including Hollywood luminaries William Saroyan, Irwin Shaw and Ivan Moffat. Stevens also used his own 16mm camera to create a unique and unforgettable color portrayal of the war's most significant events.
His son, producer George Stevens, Jr., has compiled that footage, along with the reminiscences of the Stevens' Irregulars, in this stirring, personal documentary of World War II.
Commemorate the 50th anniversary of the D-Day invasion through George Stevens' rare color footage and interviews with Special Coverage Unit survivors in this account of the War's last year, never made to be commercially released.
This personal look at WWII (from D-Day to Berlin) brings the horror of war to a new reality.
