Summary
In episode 3, A Deadly Calling, Ken Burns revisits the fall of 1943, when Life publishes a photograph of the bodies of three GIs killed in action and the American public sees the terrible toll of war for the first time. And despite American victories in the Solomon Islands and New Guinea, the Japanese empire still stretches across 4,000 miles. In Europe, the killing goes on all winter and spring until Allied soldiers finally break through to liberate Rome. Through historic footage and interviews, the program journeys to the battlefields and back home again as the public is devastated by newsreel footage of the furious conflict. Violence explodes as Americans grow more determined to do whatever is necessary to hasten the end of the war. Meanwhile, the long-delayed invasion of France is now just days away
