Based on Daniel Yergin's bestselling book on the history of oil, this series tells the history of oil, starting in the 1850s with the first oil well in Titusville, PA, and continuing through the Gulf War and into the future, speculating on the role oil will play in our society in the next century. Donald Sutherland narrates. Series release date: 1993

Program Description

During World War II, oil dictates strategy to the dictator of Nazi Germany, militates against the militarists in Japan, and, in the end, determines who is victor and who is vanquished. Rare, unofficial, and previously unseen film from military archives, home movie collections, and unexplored company vaults reveals the critical importance of oil--the unknown story of World War II.
