This is a great documentary series. At the price, it's an incredible bargain. The 65 nominal hour episodes account for over 54 hrs playing time. It's narrated by Charlton Heston who's at least not irritating and contains a fabulous amount of original film material, together with numerous interviews with significant folk now gone. It covers war from WW2 onwards.

I've seen odd episodes appearing piecemeal on 'Yesterday' much of the time but it's worth getting this boxed set, if only to evade the adverts!

It is, however, Region 1, so you'll need a multi-region or chipped player, but it certainly works in computer drives.

Alright, the packaging isn't sumptuous, nor is the brochure (there IS no brochure!).

In short: don't hesitate!

I bought this DVD set after watching several episodes on the 'Yesterday' channel on Saturday mornings. I have started watching them , but haven't finished them all yet. I enjoy the accounts very much, with Charlton Heston's narration a big plus. did you know that Hitler's plans for invasion of Europe, and Poland were known by the allies in November 1938? No. Neither did I till I saw these DVD's!

We are still watching these DVD's. There are 13 in the Series and being old people who grew up during WW2 ,we remember a great
deal about what was happening at the time. I can recommend this series to anyone interested in the history of the time.

Excellent Series. Beware that it is a Region 1 DVD and I had to download a driver which will run this DVD on my laptop.

I have watched the series twice already and some three times.
Highly recommended for school libraries. As a narrator Charlton Heston has just the right voice for this subject.
