The Perilous Flight: America's World War II in Color

The Second World War was the first war to be recorded extensively on color film, mostly by Americans. For years, much of that color footage remained unknown and unseen - until now.

The Perilous Flight: America's World War II in Colorbrings America's wartime experience, on the battlefield and at home, vividly and intimately to life by combining original color film footage with compelling passages from diaries and letters written by people who were part of an unforgettable period of history. Award-winning actor Martin Sheen narrates the four-hour series which airs in two two-hour installments
