Great TV Series!
26 August 2014 | by michaelriach101See all my reviews

I thoroughly loved this TV series, very interesting and enjoyable. The only negative thing about it is the effects were lacking slightly, I did notice that the belt on one on the Vickers machine guns wasn't very convincing, slight let down but none the less, still very entertaining and realistic. TV series are usually a let down, however this one was the best one I've seen in a while. Hope they release this on a Box set! The actors were very good and the CGI was pretty good. If they do a mini- series about World War 2, I will definitely watch since this series was amazing, shame about it only being 3 Episodes long. BBC did a very good job at making this entertaining and I have to say, it was a must watch series.
