Movie Reviews

Genuinely Rare Footage, Lots of History
Kai-Feng | USA | 12/18/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The value in this series is twofold. First, there is much footage here that is otherwise not available. Some footage, much in Victory at Sea, has been endlessly recycled in History Channel and A&E documentaries (not that this is a bad thing). A lot of the film preserved in this series I saw for the first time. Second, this series covers many events, such as the Bougainville campaign, which are seldom covered. Most series on the war in the Pacific stress the war of the marines: Tarawa, Saipan, etc. This series covers much more. Not always scintillating, and not written as vividly as Victory at Sea, this is nonetheless worth seeing."
The Complete Anthology of the Pacific War
Jeffrey T. Munson | Dixon, IL | 08/31/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This great DVD set covers the entire Pacific war. Beginning with the Japanese invasion of China in the early 1930s to the Japanese surrender in September, 1945, this great collection contains footage of every major battle of the Pacific war. Besides covering all of the "major" conflicts, such as Pearl Harbor, Midway, Guadalcanal, etc., there is also excellent footage of Bougainville, New Guinea, the Aleutian campaign, and the China-Burma-India Theater. Much of the footage contained in this set is not found anywhere else. The footage, although somewhat "grainy" in spots, is still very good and the battle sequences are extremely exciting to watch.

The DVDs are enclosed in a protective metal case, and also included is a colorful guide that contains photographs as well as brief descriptions of some of the weapons, personalities, and battles of the Pacific war.

Each disc contains four 30-minute episodes, so there is over 10 hours of great Pacific war footage in this set. The viewer will be delighted with the attention to detail and authenticity provided in each episode. The narration which accompanies each episode is helpful to understanding the battle being described, and the footage places the viewer directly in the conflict.

I give this fine collection my highest recommendation. I have watched the complete "Victory at Sea" series, and this set rates on the same high scale. The excellent footage, filmed on land, in the air, and at sea, describes the great Pacific conflict in amazing detail. The storage box is strong and durable, and the colorful and informative booklet provides the viewer with additional information. This fine DVD set is a must for any World War II enthusiast."
Historically valuable

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is an excellent series on Pacific Theater in World War II. I've looked at scores of WWII films, propaganda productions, cartoons, etc, and this one has footage in it that no other series has.

It features speeches by FDR and Churchill, has narration by people who were on the scene in the battles, and has lots of Japanese footage that I have not found anywhere else.

On top of all that, the series is incredibly inexpensive. I consider it a must-have for anyone collecting information on the Pacific Theater operations in World War II.

Note: There are a few scenes here and there of dead bodies which might upset those who are quite sensitive."
