The War, a seven-part series directed and produced by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, tells the story of the Second World War through the personal accounts of a handful of men and women from four quintessentially American towns. The series explores the most intimate human dimensions of the greates cataclysm in history - a worldwide catastrophe that touched the lives of every family on every street in every town in America - and demonstrates that in extraordinary times, there are no ordinary lives.
Back in 2007, PBS released a DVD-format version
of the Ken Burns mini-series, The War
. Today the studio has scheduled a May 15th
release of this acclaimed production on Blu-ray Disc. As with the DVD, there are lots of extras including a Commentary by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, a "Making The War
" Featurette, Deleted Scenes, and Additional Interviews. Package art is expected to look similar to the DVD front cover, but stay tuned for that and cost just as soon as we have them.
