WWII IN HD: THE AIR WAR presents the untold story of the American 8th Air Forces bloody battle to defeat the German Luftwaffe in the months leading up to D-Day. Told through the gripping, first person accounts of three American airmen and Stars & Stes reporter Andy Rooney, The Air War showcases breathtaking aerial combat original, color footage, never before seen by most Americans of the B-17s Flying Fortresses, P-47 Thunderbolts and P-51 Mustangs on missions such as Regensburg, Schweinfurt and Berlin. Never-before-seen 8mm footage of the airmen on the bases, the devastation in Germany, and the Luftwaffe perspective is also highlighted. Flying 25,000 feet above the earth in oxygen-devoid air, and temperatures as low as 50 below zero, the 8th Air Force fought a war unlike anything ever before experienced. By the end, they would suffer more than 26,000 combat deaths more than the US Marines lost in all of World War II. This two-hour special is narrated by Emmy nominated actor, Rob Lowe. Characters are voiced by: Casey Affleck (as B-17 bombardier Joe Armanini); Sean Astin (as P-47 fighter pilot Steve Pisanos); Chris ODonnell (as B-17 pilot John Gibbons); Elijah Wood (as Stars & Stripes reporter Andy Rooney)To create this series, HISTORY launched an exhaustive worldwide search for color footage. As a result, WWII IN HD: THE AIR WAR draws upon footage unearthed from archives and private collections across the globe.

An exceptional Dolby soundscape enhances the striking visuals and brings them to life as never before.
