When it comes to the subject of war there are few conflicts that loom larger in our minds than the Second World War, fought between 1939 and 1945. Many of us can remember relatives and friends who were involved in the conflict but as the years go by, passing on the lessons learnt from World War 2 to each new generation; becomes ever more important.

"War Diaries" are a fascinating series of documentaries that chart the events of World War 2 year by year, using unique archive footage to take you back in time to see what actually happened when the world went to war.

In this first film of the series, "1939", follow the prelude to war and consider how the Treaty of Versailles, drawn up after the First World War, failed to keep the peace. Watch the rise of Adolf Hitler and Nazi Germany and learn of those who attempted to stop his bid for global domination. See for yourself the preparations made by the people of Britain as war became inevitable; from the enforcement of the blackout to the evacuation of the nation`s children. Then make up your own mind about the argument of Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain for appeasement against the plea for action from the up and coming First Lord of the Admiralty, Winston Churchill.

This is modern history at its most evocative, recorded for posterity by the people who lived through this incredible time and survived to tell the tale.
