APOCALYPSE: The Second World War

Hello everyone

Here is the best documentary series that I have ever seen about the Second World War. The 6 part series "Apocalypse: The Second World War", will provide one with a good understanding and knowledge the of the major battles and events of World War 2 from 1939 to 1945.

I am sharing this documentary series with you for educational purposes. I am sharing it with you to raise an awareness of war. It has already been 100 years since the beginning of the First World War. And it has been 75 years since the beginning of the Second World War. The number of people who lived through the largest war in the history of humanity is decreasing. It is therefor important that we always remember the negativity that war brings to everybody. By having this awareness, I sincerely hope that in my lifetime and in the lives of future generations to come, no one will ever have to make a documentary about a Third World War. This is why we study history. To discover why the world is the way it is and to learn from the mistakes and successes from those before us.

1. Aggression (1933–1939): rise of Nazism and campaign of Poland, Phoney war:

2. Crushing Defeat (1939–1940): fall of Dunkirk and Campaign of France, Battle of Britain:

  1. Thank you for sharing. Yes, learning about history really will help us gain an understanding of why the world is the way it is. War is a horrible thing.

    1. Your welcome Freddie. If your interested, episode 4 specifically focuses on the war in the East; starting with the attack on Pearl Harbour. The other episodes mainly focus on the war in Europe.

  2. I will keep that in mind, but I think if you can summarize what you have learned from all these episodes, that would be of the greatest benefit, as we all come together and do that, we can expand upon what we learn together, while you read your books and watch your documentaries, I will read mine and watch what I can and then we can share together what we have learned. Many times when I read a book that is 100 pages, I may be able to write one paragraph that will get more directly at the source and save the person who is learning from me a lot of wasted time! Like a lot of these Hollywood movies out there can be summarized in just one wise statement. Like Spiderman, "With great power comes great responsibility."

    1. I'd be glad to have a Skype conversation with you about this topic. I like talking face to face with people and I can be quite the conversationist when it comes to topics I like. I have also got a few days off school so I've got time if you want to talk about it. Just email me and we can organise a time. :)
