Documentary collection of four films made by the Allies during the Second World War. 'The True Glory' focuses on the fighting between the epic landings in Normandy on D-Day to the fall of Berlin. 'Desert Victory' is the British film record of the bitter fighting against the Germans in North Africa and the victory at El Alamein. 'Tunisian Victory' covers the final British push in North Africa, and the Allied landings that caught Rommel's forces in a pincer movement. Finally, 'Burma Victory' focuses on the bloody and often overlooked fighting by the British against the Japanese in Burma, a campaign that did actually see the longest unbroken advance made by land forces by any of the Allied nations during the entire war.
