The Finest Hours of WWII

Humanity should not lose its memory, even if some may try to conceal it.

Bearing this idea in mind, a partnership of professionals belonging to the film-making companyPacific Media have undertaken an arduous research which has resulted in the serial: The Second World War.

 From the hindsight afforded by the passing of 70 years from the events narrated. From a totally independent standpoint and with freedom of thought, THE SECOND WORLD WAR describes the events in the most detailed and comprehensive way, just as they happened. From the atrocious moment in which Hitler ordered the invasion of Polish territory to the day in which Emperor Hirohito “had to accept the unacceptable”, all is encompassed in this series over its 21 programs.
