Misleading Title
25 November 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I went into this expecting to see WWII but all I got was propaganda in the form of a boring dramatized presentation. Only covers the American aspect of WWII and completely ignores anything before Pearl Harbor and anything after which does not have American involvement.

There's some unseen footage but nothing worth paying for. They even narrated over the voices of the interviewed veterans using celebrity voices. The video quality is good considering the source material. Other than that, there's not much to say in terms of compliments.

If you're looking for a complete documentary that covers all aspects of the war, then 'The World at War' is by far the best and it was produced in '73. I also recommend 'WWII in Color' which is a simplified version but does contain information not documented in 'World at War'.
