DESERT - THE WAY IN NORTH AFRICA - 1940 - 1943. For two years the 8th Army and Rommel's Afrika Korps fight in the wastes of North Africa - finally the tide turns at El Alamein... STALINGRAD - 1942 - 1943. Hitler's early successes in Russia made him reckless and he resolves to capture Stalingrad. The battle lasts six months with the Russians emerging as victors. The Wehrmacht never recovers... WOLFPACK - 1939 - 1944. In a war of high technology and animal courage, the German U-boats fight allied merchantmen, hounding them in packs. A German victory at sea will drive Britain from the war... RED STAR - THE SOVIET UNION - 1941 - 1943. For two years, the Soviet Army fights the Germans almost alone. After the greatest land battles in history, the nation survives and triumphs - with a loss of no less than twenty million of its people. WHIRLWIND - BOMBING GERMANY - SEPTEMBER 1939 - APRIL 1944. Bomber Command are unable to hit precise targets and begin bombing German cities by night. The Americans reinforce the attacks by day; a whirlwind of terror and destruction will win the war... TOUGH OLD GUT - 1942 - 1943. Churchill called Italy the 'soft underbelly of the crocodile' and thought the Allies could cut through it to the heart of Germany. But the soft underbelly turned out to be a 'tough old gut'... IT'S A LOVELY DAY TOMORROW - 1942 - 1943. Vera Lynn sang of a lovely day tomorrow, but the war in Burma was mud and monsoon. Britain's largest army learned to master the jungle and fought the Japanese to a standstill... HOME FIRES. At home in Britain during the way - a time of gas masks, Winston Churchill, Dig for Victory, evacuation, George Formby, ITMA, the Land Army, the Squander Bug and the Beveridge Report...
