Triumphant Spirit: America's World War II Generation Speaks

"Triumphant Spirit: America's World War II Generation Speaks"

Triumphant Spirit is a series of programs that feature the stories of a generation that fought and won the Second World War. No matter how they fought the war or where - on the home front or the battlefield - each veteran feature in the series contributed valiantly to a victory that changed the 20th century. They tell their stories in their own words. They are stories of actions and deeds that not only shaped the outcome of the war, but the very world we live in today.
