A film series based on Sir Winston Churchill's Memoirs of World War II.

July 1944 sees the start of the V1 flying-bomb raids and the consequent suspense and strain on an already tired civilian population-but morale is still high. In France the Americans thrust towards Cherbourg, and Operation Anvil - the landing at San Tropez on the Mediterranean - is successfully carried out. The abortive attempt to kill Hitler, made by a group of German generals, meets with savage vengeance. General Bradley's break through in Normandy enables Allied troops to race for Paris: and. with the help of the French Underground, the German commanders are forced to surrender. On August 25 Paris is liberated. (Repeat)
