Steven Spielberg knows World War 2. He clearly wasn’t there but he has produced movies and TV shows which have brought the era to life successfully and realistically. You could argue that his work on the historic event is the best there is, making it not just accessible but also informative, teaching while entertaining. If nothing else he manages to bring moments like the D-Day landings to life like nobody else.
It doesn’t just stop with war movies either. Spielberg has been involved in one of the greatest TV shows to document the event, as well as a documentary which accompanies his series. It is also a conflict he returns to, with the more recent The Pacific showcasing another side of the war.
