This video is part three of a six-volume set of films that chronicles the story of the great wars of the 20th century, and the role that the United States played in them. This volume features some of the definitive battles of World War II, and the turning points they represented in the fight between the Axis and Allied Powers. The viewer goes, via live vintage newsreels, to the Atlantic and Pacific Theaters of the war. One can witness the Battle of Britain, the success of the Allied forces at the Battle of Stalingrad, the campaign against Rommel's Afrika Corps, D-Day at Normandy, U.S. naval victories in the Pacific, and U.S. and Chinese forces training in India. Of interest also are the shots of women factory workers building bombs on the home front, and U.S. Army nurses in training, then wading ashore for service in the Pacific islands.
