This classic series follows the events that sparked the greatest conflict of the century, capturing the drama, the excitement and the ideological juxtapositions of these crucial years. Former CBS News correspondent and commentator Eric Sevareid, one of the world's most respected figures in journalism, presents this extraordinary series featuring stunning original newsreels, soundtracks, and rare archival footage.While America enjoyed itself in the Roaring Twenties, the world was changing. It was the era of Lucky Lindy, bootleg, Babe Ruth, Valentino, and assembly-line Fords. It was also the time of market collapse, Klan meetings, demagogues abroad, Red Scares at home, and bread lines. The best of times, the worst of times, and the times in which the United States reluctantly moved center stage. The Road to World War II is an innovative 16-part series that examines this crucial time as it progressed from the Armistice in 1918 to the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941. Tour the globe and revisit all the crucial sites from the U.S., Japan, Russia, and Europe. See and hear Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Churchill, and Roosevelt like never before.Pioneering newsman Eric Sevareid was, for many, the voice of World War II. He was the first correspondent to report the French surrender to Germany, and was in the thick of combat throughout the Second World War. Uniquely qualified and knowledgeable, Eric Sevareid delivers the intensity and authenticity of someone who was present at every turn.DVD 1:1. Versailles: The Lost Peace2. Return to Isolationism3.
