"I saw bits and pieces of this Walter Cronkite series when it was aired on TV a few years ago. This 2-DVD set puts the European and Pacific theaters together in one place making titles of interest easy to access. Four programs are included on two DVD's with total running time of 180 minutes.
There are shortcomings, e. g., the "Battle at Midway" is not featured with any prominence and the American viewpoint is given almost exclusively. Still, time is running out on getting interviews with our soldiers, sailors, and airmen who actually participated in World War II battles; also on getting Mr. Cronkite's expert opinion.
I would recommend this set of DVD's for anyone interested in World War II, especially from the perspective of those who were there and fought the battles. The sneak attack on Pearl Harbor is still tough to take which is why something more on America's victory at Midway might have been a good idea. Nonetheless, the extended coverage on Pearl Harbor should be food for thought in today's world."
