2.0 out of 5 stars Watchable, but sloppy, 1 Feb 2013
By 
This review is from: World War 2: The Complete History [DVD] (DVD)
Must admit, I enjoyed watching this series on TV because anything about WW2 gets my attention. Plus, I much prefer the British narrator on the TV version to the American one on this DVD set. As watchable and entertaining as I find it, i was sorely disappointed when they got a few dates wrong. Firsty, they refer to the attack on Pearl Harbour as happening on December 11th 1941 (when it was December 7th), and HMS Hood was sunk by the Bismarck in 1941 - not in 1940 as the series states. Such discrepancies are unforgivable in a documentary like this and it sours the credibility of the series. But, I enjoy watching it all the same - even if it takes a while to tune my ears into the American narrator. Also, I love how the British narrator in the TV version pronounces 'Stalin' as 'Starleen' lol.
