WWII in HD is the first documentary to show World War II from the perspective of both sides in full, immersive HD color. Culled from 3,000 hours of recently excavated color footage, and utilizing the diaries of soldiers who fought in the war’s biggest battles, this comprehensive presentation creates a personal, introspective and detailed look at life on and off the front lines. It’s truly a picture of World War II that has never been seen before. VIETNAM IN HD represents a story that is in danger of being lost to history. Using color footage never seen by the public from private collections, museums, the U.S. government, and veteran’s organizations, as well as sources from Vietnam, veterans of America’s most controversial war tell their stories and relive their struggles, courage and fears. This six-hour miniseries spans the massive initial troop build-up in 1965 to the fall of Saigon a decade later.
