Netflix is bringing animation back to the 1940s. The streaming service announced that they’ve ordered The Liberator to series. The series will run in four parts and is based on Alex Kershaw’s book The Liberator: One World War II Soldier’s 500-Day Odyssey, about the true story of the bloodiest and most dramatic march to victory across 500 days.

The animated drama follows U.S. Army officer Felix Sparks and his 157th Infantry Regiment from Oklahoma. Together, they comprise a National Guard unit filled primarily with cowboys, Native Americans and Mexican-Americans from the Invasion of Italy to the liberation of the concentration camp of Dachau.

Jeb Stuart, who created the series, will write and executive produce for Real Folk Productions. The Liberator will be the first-ever animated series produced using Trioscope Enhanced Hybrid Animation, a new patent-pending technology that mixes CGI with live-action performances.
