A definitive guide to WWII
30 January 2011 | by philosophrSee all my reviews

I am surprised that this series has received any kind of recognition at all. This is the only series I know that's out there which provides a clinical review of all the major battles of WWII. If you are looking for very detailed information on unit movements, state of troops, army echelon's state of mind, etc., this is definitely the series to watch. Of course, the human element of the war is not deeply portrayed. But then, there are other series like 'BBC's The World at War' and 'World War 2 in Color' if you are looking for that. The tone is neutral through-out, not like the pro-country narrations of other series. Tim Piggot-Smith is an excellent narrator and the background music is toned down, so you don't tire of it. If you are looking for 1.5 hour long, intuitive and intelligent dissections of every campaign, starting from Scandinavia to the Russian invasion of Manchuria (yes, they did!), this is the right series.
