About this item

After the staggering speed with which Nazi Germany occupied Europe, it took the Allies some time to regroup and mount an offensive to take back the continent. These three key "Battlefield"s turned the tide for the Allies, and hastened the end of the Third Reich's reign of terror; The Battle for North Africa, The Battle for Italy and The Battle of Normandy. This outstanding Blu-Ray disc, re-mastered in full 1080 HD is from the landmark television documentary series "Battlefield", first aired in England on the BBC and later on PBS. Now for the first time TMG and NBC Universal bring you these detailed accounts of the pivotal battles of World War II. Each episode covers one great battle, featuring portraits of the leaders and commanders, explanations of weapons and tactics, a review of the political and military situation leading up to the battle, troop deployment, and the story of the battle itself. "The Battle for North Africa": Operation Torch, the Battle for North Africa opened the way against entrenched German forces led by Erwin Rommel, the Desert Fox, and provided Allied troops with invaluable battle experience, paving the way for the eventual Allied invasion of Europe itself. "The Battle for Italy": When victory in North Africa seemed assured, Allied planners turned their attention to Italy, what Churchill called "the soft underbelly of Europe." It turned out to be far from soft. After fierce resistance in some of the most frenzied battles of the war, the Allies defeated Italy, captured Rome and pushed the Germans into retreat. "The Battle of Normandy": D-Day was the largest amphibious operation in history, but even after the Allied troops successfully captured the beachhead of Normandy, they still had to face a foe whose resilience and tenacity was legendary.
