Plot Synopsis

Narrated by Jeremy Renner, THE WORLD WARS is a three-night, six-hour documentary series that tells the story of three devastating decades of war -- from the start of World War I through the end of World War II -- told through the eyes of the powerful men who held the fate of humankind in their hands, including men like Roosevelt, Hitler, Patton, Mussolini, Churchill, Tojo, DeGaulle and MacArthur. This series examines the two wars as one contiguous timeline starting in 1914 and concluding in 1945 with these unique individuals coming of age in World War I before ultimately making some of the toughest decisions in the history of mankind in World War II. Airing on three consecutive nights beginning Memorial Day 2014 (Monday, May 26), THE WORLD WARS also features interviews with Senator John McCain, General Colin Powell, British Prime Minister John Major, Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti, and many more heads of state, military brass, and political figures. Plus, President Obama introduced the first night on Memorial Day.
