Children of War

By Bryan Single

Filmed in northern Uganda over a period of three years, CHILDREN OF WAR is a unique and incandescent documentary which follows a group of former child soldiers as they undergo a process of trauma therapy and healing while in a rehabilitation center. Having been abducted from their homes and schools and forced to become fighters by the Lord’s Resistance Army–a quasi-religious militia led by self-proclaimed prophet and war criminal Joseph Kony–the children struggle to confront and break through years of brutal abuse, extreme religious ideology, and participation in war crimes with the help of a heroic team of counselors. As these fearless allies guide the children forward into new lives, CHILDREN OF WAR illuminates a powerful and cathartic story of hope and renewal in the aftermath of war.

The Mediterranean and North Africa

By World War II In Colour

Mussolini’s ambition had always been to recreate the old Roman Empire. The trouble was, militarily he as a disaster. After failed attacks in North Africa and Greece, his armies were on the run. Hitler now faced a difficult choice. Did he divert troops needed at other fronts to support his ally, or did he let Mussolini fall? Hitler chose to support him – a decision that would spell disaster for both of them. Hitler would, lose hundreds of thousands of troops. Mussolini would lose his life. This film tells the extraordinary story of the war in North Africa and features the heroics of the tiny island called Malta as it withstood wave after wave of Nazi assault. It ends with the Allies fighting their way up Italy and Germany in retreat.

(as of Feb 12,2019 09:29:02 UTC – Details)



This book is a magisterial global history of World War II. Beginning in 1937 with the outbreak of the Sino-Japanese War, Evan Mawdsley shows how the origins of World War II lay in a conflict between the old international order and the new and then traces the globalisation of the conflict as it swept through Asia, Europe, and the Middle East. His primary focus is on the war’s military and strategic history though he also examines the political, economic, ideological, and cultural factors which influenced the course of events. The war’s consequences are examined too, not only in terms of the defeat of the Axis but also the break-up of colonial empires and the beginning of the Cold War. Accessibly written and well-illustrated with maps and photographs, this compelling new account also includes short studies of the key figures, events and battles that shaped the war.
