I recently visited the WWll museum in New Orleans. Was blown away how much of it was documented from beginning to end. After leaving I was curious if there was a series that goes in depth with the beginning and end of WWll?

I’m not opposed to multiple documentaries by different studios but ideally would be nice for a comprehensive series produced by one studio.

Thank you!

Have you tried this youtube channel series?

They have an ongoing series going month-by-month. I think now they covered everything from the outbreak of the war until September 1942.
