The World Wars

Out of the cauldron of an industrialised Europe - full of rivalry and Imperial ambition - came a 30-year period of catastrophic warfare, bloody revolution and violent ideological battles. The end result was the devastation of much of Europe, North Africa and East Asia. War historian, writer and broadcaster James Rogers presents this History Hit show about one of the most turbulent periods in global history, the World Wars. James meets experts, authors, veterans and fellow historians to examine the various spheres of conflict and those caught up in them. Together, they uncover the untold stories of war and challenge myths and misconceptions which occupy our understanding of the World Wars. Follow on Twitter @HistoryHitWW2
