American angle on WWII

History channel in US is currently broadcasting its WWII in HD (and in color) documentary. A surprizing angle on history I must say. The first couple of years of war are flew above in a few minutes, with about no look at the events leading up to the beginning of war. For them, the war truely beginning with Pearl Harbor / the Japan attack. And then another quick forward to mid 1942 with US’ first counter attacks, in Asia, Alaska, and re-take of northern Africa. German’s and Italy’s expansions? Japan’s wars in Asia? Who cares, US wasn’t there… Errrr, do they know WWII isn’t just about US?
