Reviews

This is the story of the construction and defence of Hitler s three mile deep web of fortifications, pillboxes, troop shelters and anti-tank obstacles that ran along Germany s western frontier opposite the French Maginot Line. As the war progressed and the tide turned against the Reich, breaching the West Wall caused the Allies a huge problem as they pushed for final victory. This is a brand new episode from the landmark television series 'Battlefield'. Featuring fascinating archive footage from all over the world the programme includes a review of the political and military situation before the battle, portraits of leaders and commanders, an explanation of weapons and tactics and the story of the battle itself. Vivid graphics place the battle into the context of the war as a whole.

Format: DVD
The first mention of 'The West Wall' in this film, after the title at the start, comes at around 51 minutes in. I was expecting more about the wall and less about the build up to the Allied attacks on it from the description on the cover.

The maps which pop up quite often are sometimes a bit basic and hard to understand too.

However after I'd finished watching it, I realised it was really very interesting and suggest it is well worth buying, as long as it's still available at a decent discount from the RRP. I paid about £3.50 for it.

I'm too early into my interest in WWII to discuss the historical accuracy of the commentary, but as an overview of what happened in France once the Allies broke out of Normandy, it's a good start.

Five stars has to be reserved for the likes of 'The World at War', but this DVD is well worth 3 stars.
