Roman Renaissance is compelling account of Mussolini's decline in Victory at Sea
While Hitler's Germany continues to rise, Mussolini's Italy falls leading to a battle between the U.S. and Germany for the European country's soul. Eventually, as destruction upon destruction surrounds Naples, Italy accepts defeat and allows the U.S. to liberate their people as this episode ends with Rome celebrating freedom from tyranny with American flags and the Pope addressing the audience...Spectacular footage of air battles and explosions along with the ruins of many buildings and ships of Italy provide some of the most interesting results of the folly of Mussolini's regime. This episode also provides the beginning of the end of Hitler's as well. Compelling series made more so by Leonard Graves' narration and Richard Rodgers' music. Highly essential viewing for World War II history buffs.
