Organized differently than other series
19 September 2011 | by (Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

The prominent distinction for this series is the color footage and narration by Peter Coyote. The less prominent difference is how it's organized by topic. It's a little difficult to determine the topic by the cryptic titles but understand it's not chronological or even geographical. There seems to be more Pacific footage than European. I agree with an earlier reviewer the best series is still World At War, narrated by Lawrence Olivier, from 1971. This is a very good supplement if you know the timeline and major battle sequence. Production values, editing, music and writing are superior to anything produced by The History Channel. Add this to The War in HD as relatively new historical series that provide new perspectives on this era.
