This is an incredible and excellent presentation of the history of WWII. Dr. Childers gives an extremely detailed and graphic history of the entire war. He is an engaging lecturer and enriches the presentation with personal accounts of the military on both sides. It is well balanced and a fair look at the war. If you want to view a great war history, this is the course to watch.
