Wartime battles produce many heroes, the brilliant generals and brave troops whose selfless acts of courage saved hundreds of thousands of lives. `Narrow Escapes of World War II' celebrates and honours the heroes of WWII who stood up and fought when everything else seemed lost. The series re-creates the suicidal raids, rearguard actions, and back-to-the-wall fighting it took to make sure these men made it home safely, highlighting such events as the Battle of the Bulge, Operation Hannibal, Moore's March, Operation Pedestal, and Gen. Wilhelm Stemmermann's `Breakout Through Hell's Gate'.
