CHECK YOUR COPIES: EPISODES MISSING!!!

"This was a great series!! However, buyer beware. My copy is missing Episode 3 on disk three(episode - WW2: Storming france). Although it is listed on the CD package, it is not on the CD itself, or the menu. I've encountered this type of thing before (not necessarily on "History Channel" items). We should expect the same problem will occur on other sets in the same run. Be sure to check your CDs immediately after purchase (I do as a general rule). I intend to return mine and wait a while for this problem to be worked out of the system. Highly recommended series apart from this "technical glitch". UPDATE JUNE 15, 2007. I PURCHASED A SECOND COPY OF THIS SET AND THE SAMR ISSUE WAS MISSING. DEFINITELY SOMETHING WRONG HERE!!!"
Explosively Entertaining Documentary

"This series by the History Channel takes modern combat to a whole new level. From the bloody invasion of Iwo Jima to the house to house combat of Fallujah, Shootout brings the viewer into the center of battle. CGI animation begins each segment explaining the tactical situation before the combat begins. Live action shots portray the chaos of battle which is then punctuated with commentary from the actual soldiers who fought the engagement.
This collection is a must for any United States military enthusiast or for those wanting to glimpse what actual combat is like.
THE SET IS DEFECTIVE!

"DVD NUMBER THREE IS MISSING THE EPISODE STORMING FRANCE. IT IS LISTED ON THE DVD BOX BUT IS MISSING FROM THE DVD. HOWEVER, THE SERIES IS GREAT. IF THEY RELEASE IT WITH ALL THE EPISODES I WILL REPURCHASE THE SET."

"History Channel truly producies the best military history documentaries. If you're tired of statistical stories of combat then this up-close, analytical, intense videos are for you. With in-depth interviews and re-inactments, the series will make you want for more."
