Through music, archival photos, video, and a collection of rare American flags that were carried into battle, “The Eyes of the World” tells the dramatic story of the final 11 months of World War II in Europe via the words and images of Ernest Hemingway, LIFE magazine war photographer Robert Capa, Vogue model-turned-photojournalist Lee Miller, and a young soldier named Jerry, who lands on Utah Beach on June 6, 1944.
