In this documentary series, the directors aspired to honor the experiences of those who lived through the greatest cataclysm in human history by providing the opportunity for them to bear witness to their own history. The film is therefore an attempt to describe, through eyewitness testimony, what the war was actually like for those who served on the front lines, in the places where the killing and the dying took place, as well as what it was like for their loved ones back home. The series does not sentimentalize, glorify, or aestheticize the war, but instead  simply  tells the stories of those who fought.
