Amazing DVD on Allied Armor of World War II
J. Monty | Colorado, USA | 10/06/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD provides a comprehensive overview of allied armored vehicles of World War II, while still offering a good level of detail on each. The DVD format is that of good quality period film footage of each subject vehicle, sometimes what looks like film created for original military consideration/review while other times it looks like the standard newsreel or combat film footage we're all used to finding on these DVD's. While the film footage plays on an unseen narrator provides the info, stats, and regular commentary on what the film is currently showing. The video starts off with a brief history of the use of tanks in warfare and then goes on to cover the differing philosophies with tank design and tactics and then moves right on to progress through the various Allied armored vehicle designs used throughout the war. This DVD was sort of a sleeper hit for me since it appears to be fairly new and it had no reviews to speak of. It wasn't recommended to me beforehand as many of these videos are, and there wasn't a big library of titles associated with it. But it is absolutely a hit with me and I would highly recommend it to any military history buff or someone interested in scale military modelling, etc. The film footage is of a much better than average quality and the vast majority of it is stuff you shouldn't have seen before. So if you are interested in the subject and are thinking about giving this title a shot I would say absolutely go for it! You will not be sorry and at the price Amazon asks for this DVD the value just can not be beat."
