IN EXTRAORDINARY TIMES,
THERE ARE NO ORDINARY LIVES.
There have been many wars that shaped the history of their time, but no singular event so dramatically changed the entire course of our history as the Second World War. The impact was both on a global and individual level, altering lives, communities and nations unlike any event before or since.
Six years in the making, THE WAR is a seven-episode series directed and produced by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick that examines the myriad ways in which the Second World War touched the lives of every family on every street in every town in America.
In conjunction with THE WAR, CET collected stories from Greater Cincinnati's World War II veterans. Watch their stories below.
