"This is the DVD release of this outstanding series that I have been waiting for. The History Channel version is a total flop, don't waste your money on it. When I bought this on Amazon, I was thinking that this was going to be another "flop", but that didn't happen. The narration by Leonard Graves and the music by Richard Rodgers are at the absolutey correct levels that they should be, just as in the original VHS series. The sound quality is excellent as is the video imagery. You get the lead-in theme song and the big "V" at the end of each episode, no overlapping segue as in the VHS tapes which eliminated the leadin/endings for all episodes on a given tape in the series. There is also some added bonus materials on each DVD disc which adds to the appeal of this series. All I can say is WELL DONE, FINALLY! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this version of Victory at Sea if you want the original un-edited un-corrupted TV series on DVD.
THE ON E TO GET !

"Thanks to Mr. Phillips review, I sent for this DVD - I was not disappointed. It's the one to get. This landmark documentary is presented in it's entirety with good sound and as good a picture quality as the souce material allows. And at this price - it's a steal! GRAB IT. Anyone interested in the history of the conflict of World War Two will find this incredible series invaluable. The score by Richard Rogers is stunning. At this incerdible price you can't go wrong. A treasure!"
Count The Number of Episodes!

"There are clearly supposed to be 26 episodes on the three DVD's. By the time I completed the series, it was obvious that there were only 4 episodes on each of the 3 DVD's, and I didn't get to them till 10 days after my Return Availability expired! My 3 DVD's have a total of 12 episodes, out of the 26 indicated. Therefore, I received less than 50% of what I paid for. Immediately upon receipt, put each DVD in your player and see how many episodes that you have received!"
Epic story for a good price

"I remember watching most of this series when it was broadcast the first time. This collection has the same impact on me today as it did then. The 26-minute episodes are perfect for something to watch when I have a few minutes. While they have not been digitally remastered, the quality is pretty good for 50 year-old film. I actually like the nostalgic look of the old film and the sound is just like I remember it on the 1952 Zenith B&W TV. Very enjoyable so far and absolutely no technical issues with the collection."
