Interesting, insightful and informative, in short excellent documentary.
8 June 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I thought this was an interesting and informative insight into the story of the Second World War. What impressed me most was the mix of simple and complicated factual evidence, that was used very effectively throughout the documentary. Good examples are letters from the soldiers to their loved ones, diary entries from women affected by war and extracts from Hitler's and Churchill's speeches. The music was atmospheric and well-placed throughout. The images on screen were wonderfully presented, and John Thaw's narration was perfect, never once overdoing or under doing it. I learnt a lot from this documentary, with the precise relevant details and simple yet effective scripting. The only real criticism I have was that some of the images were quite overwhelming and rather upsetting to watch. Overall, 9/10 for a well done and thought-provoking documentary. I honestly did think it is one of the best documentaries about WW2 out there. Bethany Cox
