World War II - DVD Review

Thanks to one of my awesome PR connections, I was able to review the above DVD from A&E and The History Channel. This was a huge task to take on because there are 10 DVD's to this mother load. That is 14 hours and 15 minutes of Battles on all fronts.

The best way to handle this is to just show you what their website tells you and add to it.

  • WORLD WAR II: THE WAR IN EUROPE: Eight documentaries survey the war's massive scope in Europe.
  • WORLD WAR II: THE WAR IN THE PACIFIC: Seven documentaries examine the impetus and aftermath of the battle in the Pacific.
  • BIOGRAPHY: GENERAL DOUGLAS MaCARTHUR: RETURN OF A LEGEND: The great MacArthur helped win World War II with a simple promise: “I shall return.”
  • OKINAWA: THE FINAL BATTLE: Relive the final engagement of World War II, in which over 250,000 people joined in a desperate fight.
  • EMPIRES OF INDUSTRY: WAR PLANES OF WWII: Learn about the birth of America's aviation industry and some of the greatest fighter planes ever produced.
  • NUREMBERG: TYRANNY ON TRIAL: Bear witness to the accusations, hearings, and sentencing of Nazi war criminals.
  • GREAT BLUNDERS OF WORLD WAR II: Eight documentaries expose the fatal errors and bungled opportunities that changed the course of history.

  • Bonus Features: Bonus Blunders “Battle of the Bulge,” “Bridge Too Far,” “Bomb Plot To Kill Hitler,” and “The Scattering of Convoy PQ17”
    For more information about each disc, head over to the History channels shop here. It is on sale right now for 20% off.
    In A Nutshell: If you have a war or history buff on your shopping list, this is the DVD for them. They will love you for it. My nephew couldn't wait for me to finish this review so he could have the DVD's. He is a huge fan of everything to do with WWII memorabilia. He can't wait to get his 9 year old hands on this.

    This is a great father's day gift for dad, grandpa or your 9 year old nephew if he happens to be a fan.
