Crushing Defeat

S1, E2: Crushing Defeat

Available on Paramount+, Smithsonian Channel, Prime Video, Hulu
S1 E2: The German offensive rages across Europe while Mussolini’s facist Italy joins the war along side their German allies. Holland falls, then Belgium; the French troops resist as best they can, but they’re caught off guard by the Wehrmacht’s new Blitzkrieg techniques. Abandoned by its leaders, Paris surrenders without a fight. Panic ensues across France – and as the Japanese launch a sneak attack on the U.S. at Pearl Harbor, war spans the globe.
