Synopsis

Part of the documentary series examining real-life examples of courage and self-sacrifice. This volume looks some of the Second World War's most dangerous fighting units, including the Special Air Service, designed to wreak havoc behind German lines, the airborne commandoes used by Hitler to rescue Mussolini from imprisonment, and the Japanese soldiers who refused to believe that Japan had surrendered and prosecuted a guerilla war for the next 25 years.
