Legacy Of War

Episode 1 of 1

Sixty years after covering the aftermath of World War II, Walter Cronkite returns to key European locations to recall dispatches from London as the city launched its massive rebuilding initiative, from Nuremberg as war criminals were held accountable in a gripping criminal trial, and from Berlin as the city became the icon of postwar politics. At a time when the foreign policy of the United States is being challenged around the world, this program details the successful launch and execution of the Marshall Plan -- America's expansive commitment to rebuild Europe at the end of the war. Cronkite traces the complex and changing relationship between the United States and England and explores the dramatic shifts of the Cold War from the end of the war up to the present.
