"World War II: The World at War" is the companion volume to "America in the 20th Century: The Road to War." The program begins where the first volume left off - the Japanese attack on the U.S. naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, and the United States' entry into the growing global dispute. It reviews the two fronts of WWII and concludes with postwar issues including the beginning of the cold war and the creation of the United Nations.
