Overview

Seventy years in the making, WWII in HD is the first-ever World War II documentary presented in full, immersive HD color. Culled from more than 3000 hours of lost and rare color archival footage gathered from a worldwide search through basements and archives, the film elements have been converted to HD for unprecedented clarity. Gary Sinise, Justin Bartha, Ron Livingston, LL Cool J, Rob Lowe, Josh Lucas, Amy Smart, and Steve Zahn lend their voices to the production, which presents the story of World War II through the eyes of 12 Americans who experienced the war firsthand. We hear the story of Army nurse June Wandrey, who served from the beginning of the war in North Africa to the liberation of the camps in Germany. We meet Shelby Westbrook, a young African-American from Toledo, who became a member of the famed Tuskegee Airmen; Jimmie Kanaya, the son of Japanese immigrants, who served in the U.S. Army and was imprisoned in Europe; and Jack Werner, a Jewish émigré who escaped from Austria before the war and wound up fighting not against Hitler and the hated Nazis, but in the Pacific Theater. These and other stories introduce a diverse group of soldiers whose wartime diaries and journals show in visceral detail what the war was really like.
