watch, maybe not listen
20 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

program rates a 9-plus for the archival footage- and in color; mud is brown, jungles are green, water is blue, and somehow soldiers become younger; but unlike the world at war series, the narration here is no match for Olivier and his tight, factual script; this take is much more general, and the reader not very interested; so a 7 instead of a 9 for script problems like the apologia for Montgomery at Caen in the overlord episode; Monty was the modern version of Lincoln's reluctant general Mcclellan; in Africa Monty waited for reinforcements instead of attacking; on the d-day beaches the Brits had the left flank and simply failed to make any progress while all the other beachheads pushed inland; the narration mentions getting bogged down in the weather but stunningly overlooks what could have crippled the invasion; Lincoln replaced Mcclellan, but Monty was a fabled figure and beyond reprimand; like Patton he was an egotistical sob; but Patton was aggressive, a tactical genius, while Monty was more of a bean counter who preferred to wait until he had a staggeringly superior force
