Wartime Crime

While the battlefields of World War II were a stage for remarkable acts of heroism, strategic cunning and horrific atrocities, conditions on the home front seemed more stable. Yet from bombed-out London to occupied France and even Nazi Germany itself, the war enabled one thing to flourish - crime. This new, UK premiere series looks at the street gangs, the looters, the crazed deserters, the sexual predators and the serial killers whose criminal instincts were unleashed by the conflict surrounding them.
