Now, THE WORLD WARS: EXTENDED EDITION will give fans more dramatic scenes, expert interviews and historical archives that cover key military battles from both WWI and WWII.

The series examines the two wars as one contiguous timeline starting in 1914 and concluding in 1945 with these unique individuals coming of age in World War I before ultimately making some of the toughest decisions in the history of mankind in World War II.

The stories are told through the original style that HISTORY and Stephen David Entertainment developed on the Emmy(R) Award-winning THE MEN WHO BUILT AMERICA using state of the art CGI, dramatic scenes and contributors like Senator John McCain, General Colin Powell, Leon Panetta, Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti, British Prime Minister John Major and more.
