The World Wars Three-Night Event Starts Tonight on History Channel

The World Wars™ Three-Night Event begins at 9/8C on Memorial Day, Monday, May 26 on History Channel.

Adolf Hitler. Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Benito Mussolini. Winston Churchill. Charles de Gaulle. George Patton. Before they were the giants of WWII, they were infantrymen and privates in WWI, the “war to end all wars.” The World Wars™ from HISTORY® and H2® brings you the story of the devastating three decades of 20th-century world war through the eyes of the men whose characters were forged in the trenches before they commanded a world on the brink of disaster. See how, from Ypres and the Somme to the Battle of the Bulge and the invasion of Normandy, the iconic figures of WWII became synonymous with either battlefield glory or murderous fascism.

May 26 - Episode 1: Trial By Fire

An assassin’s bullet sparks a global conflict that quickly evolves into the deadliest war humanity has ever seen. In the chaos, a new generation of soldier emerges, including a group of men who would become the most infamous leaders of the 20th century. Jeremy Renner narrates.

May 27 - Episode 2: A Rising Threat

The fighting may have stopped, but tensions around the world continue to simmer just beneath the surface.

May 28 - Episode 3: Never Surrender

A new generation of world leaders is called to action as war inevitably breaks out again.

If you visit The World Wars Store, you can pre-order the DVD, which will be released in September.

I have not been paid to promote this series, but my nephew is Vice President of Development for Stephen David Entertainment who was involved in the production of this series for History Channel.

  1. I read so many WWI and II books last year that I burnt myself out. I think because that generation is dying people are trying to remind us all of what they lived through
