A groundbreaking 26-part documentary series narrated by the actor Laurence Olivier about the deadliest conflict in history, World War II.
Many historians believe Japan surrendered because of the Soviet Union's declaration of war on 9 August 1945 and simultaneous invasion of Manchuria. It has also been suggested that an Allied naval blockade combined with conventional bombing would have been able to starve Japan into surrendering without the need for nuclear weapons.
