Important battles of World War II are examined with paired military specialists focusing on the opposing generals involved.
Also known as Generals at War (original title) and Commanders at War (US title).
Commanders at War is a TV show on the Military Channel (now American Heroes Channel). It highlights specific battles or skirmishes from World War II, where one commander is pitted against another. Using computer-generated imagery, many scenes are illustrated using cardboard-cutout-like figures to represent soldiers and equipment. Key battle decisions are examined, in order to explain the overall outcome of the battle.
