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 battlefields 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.
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.
