Thanks to the efforts of a few, private collectors and archivists, these forgotten films have been rediscovered, restored and made available by National Geographic Channel in an extraordinary six-part series:<em>Apocalypse: The Second World War</em>. In addition to stunning footage, the series presents WWII in an innovative and provocative way, giving audiences an unprecedented sense of the reality of war not conveyed by black and white footage.

Made up entirely of original 35mm, 16mm and 8mm films, <em>Apocalypse: The Second World War</em> includes rare footage of the Polish officers’ massacre at Katyn, the evacuation of the British Expeditionary Force at Dunkirk, the inhumane treatment of French soldiers taken prisoner by the Nazis and the sacrifice of Soviet soldiers at Stalingrad.

By bringing this incredible footage together, Apocalypse: The Second World War provides viewers with a ground-breaking portrait of WWII that depicts not only its complexity, but the perspectives of both its victims and its victors.

    To the NHK....does the world not deserve to know what really happened in Russia as well as the rest of the countries fighting the Germans?  Oh....that's right you want the MONEY, so those that suffered are even now not allowed to tell their story because YOU WANT MONEY.....SHAME ON YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
