The War, a seven-part documentary series directed and produced by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, explores the history and horror of the Second World War from an American perspective by following the fortunes of ordinary men and women caught up in one of the greatest cataclysms in human history.

Six years in the making, this epic 15-hour film focuses on the stories of citizens from four geographically distributed American towns—Waterbury, Connecticut; Mobile, Alabama; Sacramento, California; and the tiny farming town of Luverne, Minnesota. These four communities stand in for—and could represent—any town in the United States that experienced the war's four devastating years. Individuals from each community take the viewer through their own personal, and quite often harrowing, journeys into war, painting vivid portraits of how the event dramatically altered their lives and those of their neighbors, as well as the country they helped to save for generations to come.

6 discs, approximately 15 hour run time plus a featurette, commentary by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick and exclusive deleted scenes, PBS Home Video, 2007.
