The Fate of Europe is another compelling segment of Victory at Sea
1 July 2007 | by tavmSee all my reviews

The final defeat of Germany is chronicled here due to the Russians and now liberated France's determination to keep fighting. We also witness the meeting of Roosevelt, Churchill, and Stalin on final plans for Germany's surrender and the forming of the United Nations. At the end as Hitler's suicide is mentioned by the narrator, we see the Nazi flags get torn and German military uniforms and hats laying on the ground like discarded garbage...Compelling footage of Russians fighting, France celebrating their freedom, the world leaders conferring, and German cities in ruins make this one of the most triumphant as well as somewhat somber episodes of Victory at Sea due, as always, to the narration of Leonard Graves and music of Richard Rodgers. Kudos also for the well chosen clips. Another highly recommended episode for history buffs of World War II.
