Jeremy Renner is set to narrate History’s three-night event series “The World Wars.”

The series tells the story of three decades of war from the perspective of men like Franklin Roosevelt, Adolf Hitler, George Patton, Benito Mussolini, Winston Churchill, Hideki Tojo, Charles de Gaulle and Douglas MacArthur. It will also examine the two world wars as one continuous timeline starting in 1914 and ending in 1945.

“The World Wars” is produced by Stephen David Entertainment for History with David as executive producer, and Russ McCarroll, Paul Cabana and Elaine Frontain Bryant as exec producers for History.

“The stories that came out of the world wars are heroic, horrific and everything in between,” said Renner. “I’m happy to lend my voice to History and help tell these stories in a very different way.”

The series premieres May 26 at 9 p.m.
