A quality documentary on World War 2
25 January 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This series is a very good look at World War II for one major reason, 100% of the footage (excluding the Sun Tzu quotes and some maps) is from WW2. Except for a few rare parts the footage acts as a montage of WW2 while a narrator talks about the events and it works well. The footage has many themes, from the leaders of the time, views of cities before and after attacks, naval fleets, formations of planes, tanks rolling by and soldiers marching; the viewer is able to get a good look at the culture of the times as well as the military machines used.

The narrator has a very good voice, clear and easily understood. The script he reads is also good and has a neutral leaning, so its less about the good guys vs the bad guys and more a story of the Axis vs Allies.

What I didn't like about it was sometimes the length of time each piece of footage has can be small, and so you have time just enough to take in the scene before it is replaced by a new one. This is a minor complaint and the only one I have.

If you want to watch a quality documentary on WW2 then I highly recommend this.
