I was mighty relieved to find that they had finally issued Dogfights in british format, i had recorded several episodes on my digital recorder, only to find my young son had deleted them thiking they were dog's fighting.
These are a superb collection great for plane geeks like me, but it would have been nice to see some British and German aces as well.

I just love this series. It is so real in their images. Looks like the CGIs have actually got perfection done to a fine art. When viewing these dog fights. It is very easy to imagine one is actually in the cockpit. Well worth a purchase folks. You will not be disappointed with your purchase. My only criticism is that there is nothing on the Germans, Russians, Japanese or Koreans. Which is a disappointment. As they all didn't get killed surely? There must be survivors around from those nations to tell their versions and stories of bravery and loss. Other than that. this is a superb series.

Both seasons of Dogfights have been a really exceptional insight into the tactics and heroism of many amazing pilots and planes. The graphics have been some of the best I've seen for a TV programme and there are some very moving accounts by the pilots involved in these events. This has been a very fascinating purchase and I can't recommend it highly enough to anyone interested in aviation and the pilots involved.

A great series...
Only backdrops:
- the single-sided perspective - Allied/American/Israelian pilots are almost ALWAYS on the "winning" side. There sure were great German, Japanese, Vietnamese (etc.) pilots worth at least mentioning if not portraying.
- the age of the series shows through here and there. So the canopy or windows-sections are a bit "off" in some models (i.e. canopies on some F-4s and Mirages, the front windows of B-17s are too high...)
- a few inaccuracies, like when after a pilot shot all his missiles, sometimes they "mysteriously" reappear on the aircraft seconds later...
Anyhow and despite the above points, the series is informative and fun watching.

This is a exiting series that span from the very beginning of aerial warfare to the war in Iraq and in to the future. There are stories of intense fighting, kamikaze and obscure nazi planes, slowgoing ww1 planes and hyperfast jets. You get to see dogfights that changed history retold by the ones who experienced it. In one episode you get to see a messerschmitt "decapitate" a flying fortress on purpose!
The Bonus features are so and so, you get some information on some of the planes.
I recomend this dvd to anyone interested in planes, action and history.
I wish History channel still made shows about history,sadly history channel is growing dumber and dumber.

This is a must have for military aviation and general history enthusiasts. It conveys the tension of air to air combat with a minutiae that is commendable and lets the newbie easily get to grips with air combat manouvering and tactics. On the whole a very interesting documentary series and you just got to love some of the simulated images details, like, for instance, the trembling of the cameras as the planes pass by at high speeds, like a formula 1 track camera, simply beautiful!

I love flight sims and all things planes so this was made for me. Great presentation both in terms of the box and sleeves, and also the content on the disks. The graphics are so well done - as the voice over says "you will feel you are in the cockpit". This version has a british accent voice over, but the content has a definite U.S. leaning. But if what you are after is lot's of high speed, high action dogfights this is the one for you.

A well done follow on from the first series. The computer generated images fit in well with the real footage and give you a continuity that is hard to fault. The kamikazi segment was spellbinding. Well worth it.

This is a great set for lovers of military aviation. The graphics are superb and the commentaries lively. The people involved in the dogfights also give their commentaries and these help to make this a great DVD
