The show incorporates footage from the battlefields as well, helping to illustrate the experiences that viewers cannot readily imagine accurately. The show incorporates special, never before seen color footage of various events, such as Okinawa, Battle of the Bulge, the invasion of France, D-Day, invasions of Germany, and other historical events.
