Movie Reviews

Thorough and Insightful
jmainline | King of Prussia, PA USA | 11/22/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I love military history documentaries and have watched about 40 of them on the History and Discovery Channels. I bought this one because I can re-watch segments of it without getting tired of it. Its extensive (3 hours) but not boring. Its in black and white but it feels modern. It is well narrated, accurate and very thorough. I especially like the coverage of the invasion planning, which starts 2 years earlier. Its depiction of the operation to convince the Germans that Calais was the real target was excellent."
DDay Code Name Overlord

(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you love DDay history then this DVD is one to keep on your mantel. I can watch over and over again. It's three hrs long and it will keep your interest the whole time. It begins with the build up of the Atlantic Wall all the way to the surrender of Germany."
Operation Overlord: WWII Invasion of Europe
Happy Camper | Virginia, USA | 10/03/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you are looking for the one DVD that will tell the story of Operation Overlord, you can't do better than this one. It not only shows what really happened during the invasion of Europe, but the narration accompanying the pictures tells the story, the background and the details. I have many DVDs about this subject, but this is the ONLY one I would recommend as the last word in total coverage."
Comprehensive And Complete.
Roberto Vitale | Orlando, FL USA | 04/29/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The material is very well organized and narrated. It does a great job describing the strategy, tactics, and outcome of the operations described in it's three 1-hour chapters: "The Buildup; The Invasion; The Breakout". After seen this, you should need no other reference source for this topic. NOTES: Much of the documentary is based on old B&W footage I have never seen (I.e. not in "The World At War"). And the video quality is only adequate. There is some extra material related to WW2, but not to D-Day.
