Reviews

Just when you thought you knew everything about WWII, Secret War uncovers more incredible stories that exist under the radar. This secret war involved countless acts of espionage, courage, ruthlessness, double dealing and betrayal. It featured secret agents risking everything, working undercover in Europe to turn the tide against the Nazis, never knowing who, at any time, they could trust. Some became double agents playing both sides for the thrill of the danger, others did it just to stay alive. Always these extraordinary characters lived on the edge. Secret War tells their amazing stories.

Format: DVD
Brilliant series, rarely shown on TV, which uses historic footage, first person interviews and reconstructions to reveal the stories behind some of the lesser known operations behind enemy lines.

There's not a lot out there about the SOE on film, so this is a must have for anyone who has an interest in their clandestine operations. Eight episodes feature contributions from official SOE historian M.R.D. Foot CBE who had himself been parachuted into occupied France to work with the French Resistance following D-Day.

Like the other reviewer I too would be disappointed with the four DVD version if it claims to be 'complete'. But the three DVD box clearly states Volume 1 on the cover so hopefully Volume 2, which is to be released in April 2014, will complete the set. Of the 13 episodes in the series, six are included on the three disc release. These are:

Disc 1: Episode 11. The Special Interrogation Group & Episode 12. Hardy Amies - Operation Ratweek

Disc 2: Episode 13. The Mafia Connection & Episode 10. Double Agent Triycle

Disc 3: Episode 09. The Banker, The Norwegian And The Bomb & Episode 04. The Scholar And The Fight For Greece

Highly recommended.

As far as I know the series has 13 chapters. There are just 8 in this box. A decoy to make you buy twice. First you will probably buy this one, as the complete one is region 1, only to discover that this isn't the real thing and shell more money for the complete one.

I still don't understand why publishers insist on releasing incomplete sets. And I find the need to thoroughly research before buying a bloody DVD (which should be straightforward) insulting.

I enjoyed the programmes very much. My only gripe is that I also bought Volume II, which contains duplicate content. The DVD of 'The Dutch Disaster' and 'The SAS Italian Job' is in both volumes. If it hadn't been for this, I would have quite happily awarded five stars.

Ideal present for Dad's who never say what they want! Has been quite a talking point, and my 72 year old father keeps telling people he's found Jesus three times so far.
