Narrated by Oscar-nominated actor Josh Brolin, Never Surrender is an incredible and inspiring story of sacrifice, survival, heroism, and reconciliation. Two weeks after the Japanese marched through Manila in World War II, Lt. Edwin P. Ramsey led an offensive in the Philippine jungle that made history as the last mounted horse cavalry charge in U.S. military history. Later, after the fall of Bataan in spring 1942, Ramsey refused to surrender. He joined the Filipino resistance and rose to command more than 40,000 guerilla warriors. He became a hero to the Filipinos, a friend to every Filipino president of the next 40 years, and he went on to a successful career in international business. Living with his family in Japan for five years, Ramsey embraced his erstwhile enemies, seeking understanding rather than revenge, even befriending a business associate who helped plan the attack on Pearl Harbor.

A powerful, emotional and relevant reminder of the heartbreaking toll war takes on the innocent, this award-winning documentary tells the story of the Japanese invasion of Nanking, China, in the early days of World War II. As part of a campaign to conquer all of China, the Japanese subjected Nanking?which was then China's capital?to months of aerial bombardment, and when the city fell, the Japanese army unleashed murder and rape on a horrifying scale. In the midst of the rampage, a small group of Westerners banded together to establish a Safety Zone where over 200,000 Chinese found refuge. Unarmed, these missionaries, university professors, doctors and businessmen?including a Nazi named John Rabe?bore witness to the events, while risking their own lives to protect civilians from slaughter. The story is told through deeply moving interviews with Chinese survivors, chilling archival footage and photos, testimonies of former Japanese soldiers?and a staged reading of the Westerners' letters and diaries by Woody Harrelson, Mariel Hemingway, Jurgen Prochnow and others. NANKING is a testament to the courage and conviction of individuals who were determined to act in the face of evil and a powerful tribute to the resilience of the Chinese people?a gripping account of light in the darkest of times. This version of the film features descriptive narration for the blind and visually impaired, created by the Narrative Television Network.
