The War, a seven episode series produced by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, examines the myriad ways in which the Second World War touched the lives of every family on every street in every town in America. By telling the stories of ordinary people in four quintessentially American towns Waterbury, Connecticut; Mobile, Alabama; Sacramento, California; and the tiny farming town of Luverne, Minnesota the series portrays this enormous worldwide catastrophe on an intimate, human scale. The War intertwines vivid eyewitness accounts of the harrowing realities of life on the front lines with reminiscences of Americans who never left their home towns, and who tried their best to carry on with the business of daily life while their fathers and brothers and sons were overseas. The film honors and celebrates the bravery, endurance, and sacrifice, of the generation of Americans who lived through what will always be known simply as The War. Play Length: 900 minutes
