War and Remembrance is an American miniseries based on the 1978 novel of the same name written by Herman Wouk.
The miniseries, which aired from 13 November 1988 to 14 May 1989, covers the period of World War II from the American entry into World War II immediately after Pearl Harbour in December 1941 to the day after the bombing of the Japanese city of Hiroshima.
It is the sequel to the 1983 miniseries The Winds of War, which was also based on one of Wouk’s novels.
Byron and Natalie’s reunion is brief, because he must return to duty. Still without the proper documents, Natalie decides to wait until it is safer to cross the border. However, Germany invades Vichy France, and Aaron and Natalie are eventually interned with other Jews. In North Africa, Alistair Tudsbury is killed when his jeep hits a landmine. At Auschwitz, Col. Paul Blobel is given a tour of the newly constructed crematoriums, and is then given Berel’s work group. At the Battle of Tassafaronga (part of the Guadalcanal Campaign), Pug is forced to abandon his ship after it is heavily damaged by Japanese forces.
