I honestly dont know what people were looking for in a dvd documentary. action?, footage? a documentary is ultimately about the information, learning something. personally I don't care if it looks cheap which in this case I have seen alot worse, the footage has been colourised which some like, some dont, personally I dont care as long as I can see whats going on. but ultimately its the info I was after. this is a very comprehensive dvd which delves into the background of the campaign. attitudes, planning, reasons, scope of the whole war in the pacific from the American and Japanese side. there are interviews and alot of info that is usually ignored in other documentaries that begin on dec 7th. I read the reviews before buying this and so expected very little, I was pleasantly surprised when I found they were all wrong or narrow minded. If you actually want to know about the war in the pacific buy it. if you have some other strange reason to buy a documentary series like this then don't.
real history without the gung ho slant
