"I AM A BABY BOMMER OF 47.I LIVED AROUND THE CORNER FROM THE NAVAL HOSPITAL IN SOUTH PHILLY.AS A YOUNG GUY I DID NOT UNDERSTAND WHAT IT MEANS TO GO TO WAR.AS I MATURED AND WORLD HISTORY BECAME NOT JUST A SUBJECT IN SCHOOL.BUT IT BECAME MY HOBBY AS IT IS TODAY.FROM THE BEGINNING TO THE END OF THE :CRUSADE IN THE PACIFIC: WAR IS NOT A BEAUTIFUL SIGHT BUT I WOULD RECONMEND THIS FIVE DISC SET,SHOULD BE SHOWN TO EVERY 9TH GRADER HERE IN AMERICA.IT WILL SHOW WHAT THIS COUNTRY IS MADE OF?IF YOU LIKE HISTORY THE PRICE IS WORTH IT."

"My 84 year father, a WWII vet of the Pacific Theater, was mesmerized by these episodes. The Pacific is a neglected aspect of WWII history in comparison to the European Theater of Operation so I was glad I came across this. "Crusade in the Pacific" is thorough and knowledgeable.

The Best of the Pacific War DVD

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a fantastic set if you want to learn about the war in the Pacific, which tends to be overlooked in many of the comprehensive sets that cover both campaigns ETO/PTO. It takes you from the root causes and the Japanese political situation and it's Manchurian campaign...right through to occupation of Japan and the Korean war. It covers many areas that are neglected in most WWII documentaries. The chapter on the New Guinea campaign was footage I've never seen and have been watching WWII documentaries for 35 years.Coverage of the Aleutians and the China Burma India theater was also rare. The one fact that Both my father(WWII VET, Bouganville)and I appreciated that chapter for the fact it covers the entire Solomons Campaign where most documentaries lead you to believe Guadalcanal was the only battle if the Solomons!

A Suggestion if you want this series that covers the Pacific AND the series that covers the War in Europe...Do a search for Great WWII Campaigns, when I bought that set it was $2.00 less than the Pacific by itself.

A WARNING- This set is sold under MANY different names (I actually unknowingly bought it twice).The names I've seen it as (and I'm sure theres more)War in the Pacific-The Crusade; Crusade in the Pacific; Crusade in the Pacific:A War that Shook the World; Great Battles of the Pacific; War Classics: Crusades in the Pacific; Great WWII Campaigns (covers both PTO and ETO); Campaigns of the Pacific....I'm sure there's more but if you cant find chapter listings to compare (I used Google to find most)...you can tell by the run time...ususally 570-600 minutes"
