"Rating is 4-star overal (3 for engineering, 4 for content, 5 for value).
This is not the same high quality as seen with Ken Burn's The War, or the History Channel series. It is more akin to older (1943-1951) The Flag Waves On/Crusade in the Pacific and Frank Capra's Why We Fight. I like all the aforementioned. Disk navigation is faulty but with perseverence all tracks can be accessed. I've seen this on 2 different Battlefront sets, on 2 different players; it's possible that some premium players may have better error correction and may navigate flawlessly.
Given these deficiencies, Battlefront is a budget series and can be purchased new for $5-20 in the tin box. It is and interesting addition/reinforcement to your war documentary series, and is an outstanding value if you can obtain it for < $7. I am curious if the $20 versions have better quality, but I'll tolerate my set and enjoy a few more Big Macs."

"The earthshaking battles of WWII come to life in this fascinating collection reviewing one of the most epic and disturbing chapters in history. This is a visually stunning documentary and is a powerful testament to the titanic struggles of those who lived, fought and died in a war that shook the world. Astonishing Color footage, taken from newsreels and captured enemy film, reveals the grinding intensity of campaigns fought in the Atlantic and Pacific theaters.
WWII Battlefront covers the war in the air, or the ground, and above and below the sea in never before seen COLOR footage and captures WWII in the way it was lived and fought by soldiers, sailors, marines and airmen from both the allied and axis armies. 7 hours and 30 min long"
