Glad to see that no-one has REALLY dissented from the basic purpose of this box-set. Alright, I know it is a Russian produced documentary series based upon the Great Patriotic War and all of the elements of the Red Army/ Navy/ Air Force elements involved in it....& I know that it was Russian produced, so I know that it is not completely unbiased.... HOWEVER, that apart, this series breaks down the various roles of the armed forces of Stalinist Russia & how they operated in WW2. The presentation is of good quality. The Russian presenter is backed up by a high quality of CGI background that represents the equipment/ vehicles used in the conflict while he is narrating. Beyond that, the CGI is used to good effect & quality when representing/ recreating the war. It is of a very good standard. I know that some reviewers have been dissenting in their summaries with regard to the script not following the narration on certain parts of the series...true, but is IS a Russian series translated into English, & I know it is not perfect in this respect, but it really is not that bad. As a consequence, it is better to receive Russian TV translations to see their point of view, than a completely Western view without this facility. It provides more more 'balance'. I thoroughly enjoyed this series, & even with it's aforementioned faults, definitely a solid 4 stars. Recommended.
