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

July, 1944, sees the start of the V.1 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 St. 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 breakthrough 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.
