De Gaulle, Churchill, Hitler, Mussolini, MacArthur, Tojo, Stalin and Roosevelt. These are some of the men who have shaped the world and made it into what it is today.
In The World Wars TV series, you will find out exactly what had influenced these men to make the decisions that they did. The true characters of the men behind the legendary names are revealed.
What makes this series particularly unique is that it is not an anthology of the two World Wars. But rather, it comes in the form of a drama that explores the nature of the men in charge of the action – and gives each of the leaders a human face.
