        The Last Days of World War II | World War II Stories

        World War II was a long and brutal war. After three years, eight months and eight days, the fighting for American forces was over. It is estimated that more than 60 million people were killed in the conflicts, many of them civilians.  Sixteen million Americans had been sent to war; 406,000 never returned. Soon the focus could change from sacrificing to rebuilding. This segment of Iowa Public Television's Iowa’s WWII Stories includes historical footage and interviews with two Iowa veterans.
