Storyline

The saga of the Henry family, begun in "The Winds of War" continues as America is attacked by Japan and enters World War II. For Victor Henry, an upwardly mobile naval career sets him in command of a cruiser with sights on selection for the Admiralty. At the same time, however, Victor must struggle with a failing marriage as well as a love affair with the daughter of a prominent British radio news reporter. Victor's son Byron has equal success as a submarine officer, eventually selected to command his own ship, yet all the while must deal with the separation of his wife and son who are held in German custody as enemy alien Jews. Through other such characters as Professor Aaron Jastrow, Naval Pilot Warren Henry, and the noble German General Armin von Roon, "War and Remembrance" unfolds into an all encompassing and fascinating story of the Second World War.

Trivia

When the series was shown on the ITV network in the UK in the late 1980s, several of the graphic concentration camp scenes were shown out of sequence. This was to ensure they were transmitted after the 9:00 p.m. "watershed". There is an unwritten rule that potentially "offensive" images are never shown before this time. See more »

Goofs

During the Japanese attack on Midway Island, we clearly see at least two tropicalized Supermarine Spitfires in RAF markings. See more »

Probably the most amazing and important television mini-series ever!
14 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I own the entire DVD collection for both "The Winds of War" and "War and Remembrance." As a university professor, it is required viewing for my 20th century world history class. All elements of this production are astounding: casting, acting, writing, historical accuracy, filming, locations, not to mention the haunting music.

Many of my students have told me that seeing this series changed their view and motivation of the importance of historical knowledge and the passing of it from generation to generation. They have even formed outside discussion groups because the allotted class time is never enough to accommodate the forum required for voicing and digesting their thoughts and feelings brought on by the film. This is a film for the ages.
