It was the Greatest Generation’s greatest moment: when heroes at home and abroad, united in common purpose as soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines—under the leadership of generals like Patton, Eisenhower, Marshall, and Bradley—rescued Europe from the tyranny and genocide of Adolf Hitler.

In War Stories III: The Heroes Who Defeated Hitler, Marine combat veteran Lt. Col. Oliver North gives you a chance to revisit the front lines. Using dramatic first-person testimony, North reveals:
  • The reality of combat: how it felt to live through the Battle of Britain as a citizen and a pilot, on the ground and in the air
  • The stories of Yanks in the RAF: how Americans fought Hitler before Pearl Harbor
  • America’s first taste of battle in North Africa against the Germans—and the French
  • A date with destiny: men and women who joined up together to fight for liberty
  • The saga of war on the home front: how women faced enormous challenges in America, Russia, and Britain and helped win the war

Featuring extended interviews with veterans that cover the war in Europe from beginning to end, War Stories III: The Heroes Who Defeated Hitler is a testament to the courage and sacrifice of the World War II generation—a remembrance of the bravery and honor of these heroes.

It belongs in the hands of every veteran, every student, and every American.
