About this book
Paperback edition of the landmark oral history, using previously unpublished interviews from the classic TV series. The late Richard Holmes has skilfully woven this valuable original material into a compelling narrative of WWII. '"The World At War" was one of the greatest television series of all time.' Laurence Rees
A definitive television work on the Second World War. It set out to tell the story of the war through the testimony of key participants - from civilians to ordinary soldiers, from statesmen to generals. First broadcast in 1973, the result was an irreplaceable record since many of the eyewitnesses captured on film did not have long to live.
