Running Time: 900 minutes
The War, a new seven-part documentary series directed and produced by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, explores the history and horror of the Second World War from an American perspective by following the fortunes of so-called ordinary men and women who become caught up in one of the greatest cataclysms in human history.
Six years in the making, this epic 14-hour film focuses on the stories of citizens from four geographically distributed American towns - Waterbury Connecticut; Mobile Alabama; Sacramento California; and the tiny farming town of Luverne Minnesota. These four communities stand in for - and could represent - any town in the United States that went through the war's four devastating years. Individuals from each community take the viewer through their own personal and quite often harrowing journeys into war painting vivid portraits of how the war dramatically altered their lives and those of their neighbors as well as the country they helped to save for generations to come.
Paramount's six-disc Blu-ray set offers The War in its broadcast aspect ratio of 1.78:1 with a English 5.1 Surround soundtrack.
The package also contains the following bonus supplements:
•Audio commentaries by the directors on "A Necessary War" and "Pride of Our Nation"
