Battlefield: The Battles That Won The Second World War: Series 2 - E

£6.99

Product description

THE BATTLES THAT WON THE SECOND WORLD WAR - Six classic two-hour episodes from the acclaimed TV series:

1) The Battle for North Africa; The long struggle for North Africa provided US forces with invaluable battle experience, paving the way for the eventual re-conquest of Europe.
2)The Battle of the Atlantic; For the British the longest and most critical battle of the entire war. The German intention was to sever Britain's trading links with the world, guaranteeing her capitulation.
3) The Battle for Russia; Hitler's plan for the conquest of Russia called for a classic Blitzkrieg offensive, which would be pressed ruthlessly to its conclusion within the course of a single season's campaign.
4) The Battle for Italy; When victory in North Africa seemed assured, Allied Planners turned their attention to Italy. The objective was to seize Rome, knock Italy out of the war and push north towards Austria.
5)The Battle of Leyte Gulf; To restore American prestige in the Pacific, Roosevelt authorised an invasion of the Philippines, a former US territory and the scene of a humiliating defeat at the hands of Japan in 1942.
6) The Battle of the Rhine; During the last months of 1944 the British and Americans pressed steadily through France and Belgium to the western frontiers of the Third Reich.
