World at War - The Bomb - Episode 24 of 26

The British produced "World at War" documentary series from the 1970's is considered the definitive history of the Second World War and one the best documentaries of all time. So with that in mind I will endeavor to upload the entire 26 episode series that I possess for the benefit of all over the coming days. I highly recommend viewing every episode.

Enjoy and learn so that we may NEVER FORGET all those who sacrificed so much for our freedom. Our remembrance is the very least we can do to show our gratitude and respect.

  • "considered the definitive history of the Second World War"

    only by Americans and citizens of NATO countries. 80 - 90% of Germany's soldiers, planes, tanks, and resource were killed or destroyed on the Eastern front, but this documentary series concentrates disproportionally on America. This is no surprise since this documentary was made during the height of the Cold War and the West and its historians didn't want to give Russia the credit it deserved. (I personally don't like the Rus More..

    • Japan didn't lose 650K, they became POWs during the last days of the war. Quite different than say Stalingrad or the Bulge.

    • When one country captures the soldier of another then that soldier is out of the war and it is considered a lose to the country. I wrote "lost" instead of "killed" or "died in combat" for that very reason.

      BTW, a large part of the reason why this happened near the last days of the war with Japan was precisely because the large Japanese losses during this battle BECAME a major reason for them to end the war.
