A multi-volumed documentary mini-series, "The World at War" covers the entire history of World War II from the causes of the 1920s to the aftermath of the Cold War in the 1950s. Emphasis is also placed on several inside story episodes, where events are covered which occurred inside Germany and Japan such as resistance to Hitler, life in general under a dictatorial regime, and particular emphasis is focused on the Jewish Holocaust.

Some historians have suggested there was no need for an invasion of Japan (Operation Downfall), and a naval blockade with conventional bombings would have starved Japan into surrendering. It is believed Operation Starvation would have forced the country to surrender in the summer of 1945 if it had been started earlier. See more »
The most authoritative Second World War documentary series
Certainly any others I have seen pale in comparison. The series gives
balanced coverage to all theatres of operation. No one country is given
undue credit for the Allied victory. Laurence Olivier brings great weight
and dignity to his role as narrator.
