History of Warfare: World War II - The Final Victory (3DVD Set)
By late 1944, Nazi Germany was a nation under siege as key battles were fought along the Western Front that sealed the fate of Adolph Hitler and Nazi Germany.
DISC 1 - THE FINAL VICTORY
This is the story of those last fateful months of the war in Europe, from the round-the-clock bombing missions to Cologne in October 1944, to the desperate race to secure the Ludendorff Bridge at Remagen - the last bridge standing on the Rhine, which was captured by soldiers of the US 9th Armored Division on March 7th, 1945.

DISC 2 - THE FINAL BATTLES
This program highlights the period when American and British forces had pushed west towards Germany s defensive Siegfried Line. The Germans responded with their own counter offensive, known as the Battle of the Bulge, which was a last-ditch attempt by the Germans to reverse the course of the war. By the time Hitler s regime finally perished in the flames of Berlin under siege, the cost of defeating Nazism had amounted to almost 33 million lives in Europe.
