Way to expansive for recycled material.,
This review is from: World War II: On The Russian Front [3 DVD BOX SET] (DVD)
This documentary only uses old and recycled material, that has been seen in many other documentaries. It does not justify the high price you as a customer has to dish out. The narration for the mildly interested History fans, has the effect of a sleeping pill, nothing new and exciting to be learned here. I only give it 1 star, for the fans that need an introduction to this theater of war, that where not exposed to other productions, dealing with the eastern front,or as the Russians call it: The Great Patriotic War". And of course for viewers that feel only comfortable with American or British narrations. But I believe they get cheated here too.
If you want to venture out, there are the better Documentaries "The Unknown War", "Blood upon the Snow", "Death on the eastern front", "World War 2 - The Eastern Front (Region 2 from UK)" but much better and more elaborate : "RED ARMY" (Liberators of the Red Army) released by the UK Discovery Channel. If you feel very curious I highly recommend "Soviet Storm: WW2 in the East", A high production Documentary, most modern appliction of CGI special effect, mixed with reenacted scenes, and original footage. The only problem , this Documentary is only available in Russian language on DVD.
