3.0 out of 5 stars Bizarre numbering of DVDs 8 May 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I haven't yet watched this (as still watching The World at War) and will therefore update this review (and rating) later.


1. The DVDs are not numbered in chronological order. Thus Alamein is numbered 1. before the Battle of Britain 2. and, even more amusingly the third disc is Battle of the Bulge i.e. numbered before the fourth and eighth discs 'Breakout from Normandy' and 'Liberation of Paris'. My suggested order of watching (subject to my watching the discs!) is 2, 7, 1, 4, 8, 6, 3, 5 (although 7 and 1 might be reversed).

2. on the back of the cover for disc 3 'Battle of the Bulge' is written that this battle commenced on December 14th 1945. By this date the Second World War was over. The Battle of the Bulge commenced 14.12.1944.

I hope these type of errors are not continued in the programme itself.....

2.0 out of 5 stars Nothing hidden ... 28 Jan 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A misleading title : Supposedly new content deriving from forgotten air reconnaiscance pictures of the battlefields of ww2 . This becomes a standard introduction to all episodes. But ... there is absolutely nothing new to any of them. Narration of classic ww2 battles with some inteviews of the combatants and some footage recently shot to 'dress-up' the older classic one.
People who have never before entered this field of historic DVDs may be happy to have this product but those with some expertise in it would rather consider the "Battlefield" series as by far more analytic and historically more serious into their analysis. It will suffice to say that the camouflage ability of the RAF airfields and the dispersion of their squadrons is portrayed in these series as 'the hidden truth' that contributed to the RAF victory !
