4.0 out of 5 stars good but slightly annoying
The content of the documentary is very good and interesting. However, the break in the story every 10 minutes, and the slightly annoying American voice over saying 'join us after the break as we go in search of history', is slightly off putting. would still recomend this box set to anyone interested in WW2 etc.

1.0 out of 5 stars waste of money & not academic in any way
This is no more than 10 minute snatches of info strung together in a patronising & tedious way, it is not educational as it is mostly urban generalisation, some urban myth and just scratching the surface of the historical facts. There is nothing new on this set, anyone who is so grossly ignorant of WW11 to find this informative or educational really needs help. There is...

1.0 out of 5 stars waste of money & not academic in any way, 26 Dec 2011
This review is from: Adolf Hitler: A Reign of Terror (6 Disc Box Set) [DVD] (DVD)
This is no more than 10 minute snatches of info strung together in a patronising & tedious way, it is not educational as it is mostly urban generalisation, some urban myth and just scratching the surface of the historical facts. There is nothing new on this set, anyone who is so grossly ignorant of WW11 to find this informative or educational really needs help. There is no real research, no referencing of material just the same old stuff trotted out with the normal american slant to it. Very amateur production too. Nice box but not worth the price of the set really, suggest the best use for these discs is as bird scarers in the garden.

1.0 out of 5 stars Zero stars .... read on, 8 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Adolf Hitler: A Reign of Terror (6 Disc Box Set) [DVD] (DVD)
I agree with the previous reviewer ... the best bit of this purchase is the box. It is superbly crafted with a distressed look; appears as if a genuine 1940s piece (retro at its best and could fetch good money on 'Bargain Hunt')! However, the content (the DVDs) is simply a montage made up of amateur offerings from History Channel shows; there's nothing original or specific here. Mind you, without any hint of embarrassment and in true American in-your-face so-what style, there is no attempt at a cover-up! My recommendation is to do what I did - discard the DVDs (I gave mine to the local charity shop) and place your better Hitler memorabilia in the exceptional case (which is worth the money on its own).

1.0 out of 5 stars Adolf Hitler, 20 Jan 2013

This review is from: Adolf Hitler: A Reign of Terror (6 Disc Box Set) [DVD] (DVD)
Not impressed at all, it seemed fragmented and once again commentary rather than exciting. Could not follow the direction this DVD was taken me.

1.0 out of 5 stars Deception Package, 22 Jan 2011
By 
Ernst Wiltmann "store746" (Parry Sound, Ontario Canada) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Adolf Hitler: A Reign of Terror (6 Disc Box Set) [DVD] (DVD)
Over and over recycled material, without substance to the claim it contains in the synopsis.
If you want CGI graphics, bundled with latest historical science, material from the recent declassified Kreml archives, they are not in this package. Just very general "run of the mill" material, that historical interested viewers have seen before. And actually very little evidence about Stalin's atrocities,
I was hoping to find in this set.
To round it up: Nothing but Hype, and very little substance. Only the Package would look good in your Media Shelf.
The whole Documentary could have been put on one two sided disc. A big waist of resources.

1.0 out of 5 stars A Reign of Terror, 18 July 2010
This review is from: Adolf Hitler: A Reign of Terror (6 Disc Box Set) [DVD] (DVD)
The best thing about this set of documentaries is the box the 6 discs come in. Congratulations to the packaging / marketing team. The actual documentaries are far too superficial to be appreciated and they don't tell us anything we didn't hear about in high school except for the decoding of the silent films. A big waste of money.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful, 19 April 2014
This review is from: Adolf Hitler: A Reign of Terror (6 Disc Box Set) [DVD] (DVD)
I could not believe each DVD has only 1 episode on it!! Also it is totally lacking in substance and any other TV documentary would be much better. In general I find avoiding anything by the History channel is good advice as they are overly American styled (lots of repeating the same content, and strange broken presentations as they have spots where breaks would have been in tv).

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but not good enough, 15 Aug 2011

This review is from: Adolf Hitler: A Reign of Terror (6 Disc Box Set) [DVD] (DVD)
Very little new information.
Each dvd is only 40-45 minutes long & only covers one specific subject.
The whole lot could have been put on 2 dvds, saving packaging & shelve space.

By no means a comprehensive coverage of Hitler.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Adolf Hitler: A Reign of Terror (6 Disc Box Set) [DVD] (DVD)
A fascinating record of the life of one of the most charismatic figures in history.
It's one of those sets you could watch over and over again.
