Apocalypse: The Second World War

Having recently posted Apocalypse: World War I, I thought it best to complete the series with the sequel, Apocalypse: The Second World War, which is a six-part documentary about World War II. Similar to the previous instalment, this film is composed exclusively of actual footage of the war captured by various war correspondents, soldiers, resistance fighters and private citizens. The footage itself has been brought back to life using colourisation techniques but we also see some early original colour footage too.

If you have already seen Apocalypse: World War I, you will know that the series does an excellent job at capturing the sheer scale and terror of these wars, detailing all key battles from the known to lesser known in chronological order to give you a true understanding of how history was made.
