It’s the Collector’s Edition release of WWII in HD, out on Blu-Ray from The History Channel. Here’s what they have to say for themselves:
The first documentary to show original color footage of World War II in immersive HD, WWII IN HD uses the journals and accounts of those who served in the war’s biggest battles to create a personal, introspective and detailed look at life on and off the front lines. Follow 12 unforgettable Americans, and experience the war through their eyes, in their own words, as it really looked and sounded. Culled from over 3,000 hours of rare color film found in a two-year worldwide search and converted to HD with meticulous technique, WWII in HD provides a picture of World War II as it has never been seen before. Also included in this ultimate edition is THE BATTLE FOR IWO JIMA, an immersive look at the momentous battle using gloriously restored, full-color footage, some of which has never seen before and WWII IN HD: THE AIR WAR, the untold story of the American 8th Air Force’s bloody battle to defeat the German Luftwaffe in the months leading up to D-Day.
