Remembrance

The History Channel  |  November 11, 2010

This special program pays homage to those Australians who served in World War II - a farewell to the generation now passing into history. Remembrance is powerful storytelling about the lingering human cost of war and how ordinary people face extraordinary challenges. The eight veterans interviewed include former POWs of the Japanese, a chaplain who served in New Guinea and another New Guinea veteran who, like many young men of that generation, put his age up to serve on the frontline as a 16-year-old.
