THE WORLD WAR II WE WERE NOT MEANT TO SEE…
SMITHSONIAN CHANNEL EPIC PRESENTATION
APOCALYPSE: THE SECOND WORLD WAR
Six-Part Series Narrated By Martin Sheen Premieres
Veterans Day, November 11 at 8PM (ET/PT)
This Veterans Day, Smithsonian Channel premieres a six part series on World War II that is comprised of footage that the American public has never seen before. This is not the stock, newsreel or propaganda footage that the world had become all too familiar with seeing. This is provocative footage filmed by those who witnessed the war first-hand. This is the footage deemed ‘unfit’ for civilians to see. Until now!
This epic presentation will forever change the way we look at the Second World War, with extraordinary footage that has been restored, colorized and transferred to stunning high definition. APOCALYPSE: THE SECOND WORLD WAR, a six -hour series narrated by acting icon Martin Sheen will air over six consecutive nights beginning Wednesday, November 11 at 8pm ET/PT.
