Overview

Synopsis

From Remagen To the Elbe
In this full-color film showcasing the U.S. Army's final push across Germany and into Austria, the battlefield comes to life as never before in bold color and breathtaking motion. It was the greatest war that history has ever known, and now the fight comes home in this release featuring some of the only color footage of World War II in existence. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

VJ Day: War and Peace
From ArtsMagic's "60th Anniversary Collection" comes this release documenting America's victory over Japan in waning days of World War II. On the heels of a devastating one-two atomic punch that leveled Hiroshima and Nagasaki and took the lives of over 70,000 Japanese, the country finally surrendered on August 15, 1945; marking the end of the largest war the world had ever seen. Produced to coincide with the sixtieth anniversary of what has come to be known as "V-J Day," this documentary compiles interviews from various individuals who lived through those dark days to tell the tale of the events that led to the end of the grueling war and marked the first time that atomic weapons were used in battle. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

The Fall of Berlin
This Russian WW2 documentary was held back from release by Artkino until the studio's similarly-themed The True Glory was distributed in the US. As a result, many of the newsreel clips included herein had already been seen by American audiences. This doesn't dampen their effectiveness, however; the fall of Berlin is depicted in vivid and sometimes harrowing detail, the city's smoldering ruins a mute but eloquent testimony to the utter collapse of the Third Reich. Told from a Soviet point of view, the film glosses over some of the crueler (albeit often justified) excesses of the Russian army, proving anew that history has always been written by the victors. American prints of Fall of Berlin included an English-language narration by William S. Gailmor. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

VE Day: War and Peace
VE Day: War and Peace presents the end to World War II as you have never seen it before -- through the eyes of the people that were there and the celebrations that occurred afterwards. Starting with Hitler's death and the fall of the Reich, see how America reacted to the end of the War that shaped the country in some of its toughest times. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi
