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!
