This exciting series for National Geographic adopts a fresh approach to the great battles of World War Two.
Each episode tells the story of a battle through the eyes of two opposing generals. Two modern day military specialists, often generals themselves, get inside the heads of their historical counterparts to unpick their strengths and weaknesses. A team of experts out in the field compare and contrast the hardware each general had at his disposal.
In a dramatic device, a war-time bunker becomes the setting for these epic conflicts. As the generals face off across the battle map the action comes alive in CGI: soldiers march across the table, tanks blast away at each other and planes fly overhead.
The show was awarded the prize for Most Innovative Production at the 2010 History Makers Awards.
