The Vietnam War (disc four), is done in the same rush as with WWI. The Suez Crisis and The Bay of Pigs takes up disc three, and The Six Days War (Middle-East) and The Falklands War takes up disc five. Disc five illustrates what I mean by the title of this little review; The Falklands War is a good documentary about a weird little war I've found very little documentary on. Nice find! The Six Days War-documetary however, is a stupid attempt at combining a documentary with a TV-game! "See how many plains you can shoot down!" What?!
Desert Storm (Iraq-Kuwait war, 1991) takes up disc six. As with most of this stuff on these sic DVDs there is very little new footage or insights.
These 6 DVD box sets from the History Channel ... you get plain rubbish, and you get some good stuff. It's just as well it's cheap. I only wish the DVD description from Amazon could be better, a bit more detailed.
Shipping from Amazon was quick. It always is, no complaints there.
