On Tuesday, December 7, 2010, at 8 PM, UNC-TV honors North Carolina's "Greatest Generation" with the premiere of the two-hour documentary event, NORTH CAROLINA's WWII EXPERIENCE. Through a remarkable array of revealing personal accounts from local veterans and civilians, this UNC-TV original production stands as a moving testament to those North Carolinians who served and sacrificed during the Second World War.

From the home front, where camps and bases sprang up across the state and Nazi U-boats targeted merchant ships off the Outer Banks, to the battle fronts of North Africa, Europe and the Pacific, NORTH CAROLINA’S WORLD WAR II EXPERIENCE weaves together personal stories with stunning archival footage, photographs and newspaper headlines.
