Commemorate Remembrance Week with War Story

Toronto, ON – This year Canadians commemorate Remembrance Week with a remarkable new television documentary series, WAR STORY, premiering on HISTORY Thursday, November 8 at 8 pm. WAR STORY is a landmark series, featuring the personal stories of Canadians in combat, told entirely by the men and women involved.

In WAR STORY, veterans bring their own experience to the screen in their own voices – no pundits, no narrator. The result is a series remarkable in its immediacy, its humanity and its candour. Using intimate and moving interviews, together with spectacular high definition archive film, WAR STORY brings to life the horror and heroism of battle and survival as never before.

Each episode of WAR STORY recounts an exciting and untold tale of a specific historical event or campaign. These stories include: a courageous, costly and controversial WWII bombing campaign over Germany; a guerilla campaign Jewish partisans fought against the Nazis in the forests of Poland; heroic soldiers slogging their way up Italy; exuberant Canadian women on the homefront forging the guns that won the war; and unsung airborne veterans jumping from planes into Germany, only to confront the Red Army.

“These witnesses are now at a time in their lives when they are willing to reveal what really happened, in all its horror, humanity and, sometimes, humour,” says WAR STORY Series Director/Co-Executive Producer Barry Stevens. “These are men and women who, often at a very young age, went through hell to fight for what they believed in. WAR STORY honours their sacrifices – and we hope viewers will, too.”

HISTORY will commemorate Remembrance Week by showcasing ten episodes of WAR STORY over the four day period leading up to and including Remembrance Day.
