WAR STORY is a landmark 25 part documentary series for HISTORY featuring little-known stories of Canadians in combat, told entirely by the men and women who were there.
Each episode of WAR STORY tells the story of an extraordinary military event where Canadians made the difference: Bombing raids over Germany, The Italian Campaign, the airdrops of the 1st Canadian Parachute Battalion, the women who made the weapons, the Jewish Partisan campaign and the battle of Kap'yong. Through powerful, intimate interviews and spectacular high-definition historical footage, WAR STORY reveals the horror and heroism of battle and survival as never before.
WAR STORY looks behind the headlines and slogans, exposing the very human side of conflict: the victories and the cost, the love and loss. Through the voices of the footsoldier, the leader, the civilian and the enemy, WAR STORY provides new and unprecedented insight into stories you thought you knew.
