Great Supplemental Stories From WWII
Derrik Mantel | Maplewood, MN USA | 11/10/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I am a fan of most WWII documentaries. I had not seen most of the segments in this set with the late Walter Cronkite. It has some great seldom told stories from an American Newsman's Perspective who served in World War II. It contains stories about Leningrad, Stalingrad, Finland, Malta, North Africa, The Air War over Germany, the north atlantic convoys, The German V1, V2, rocket program, War Crimes trials and many others. I find it to be an excellent supplement to the World at War box set. A true enthusiast will not find this set disappointing. It is over 14 hours in length. Most volumes consist of stories that are about 20-30 minutes in length. They are pieced together well and add some depth to the picture of WWII that is portrayed so often on the History channel. It is a five star set in its content and quality but does not have the international perspectives or comprehensive view of the war that the World at War has. It also does not have the detailed military analysis that the Battlefield Series has. Still, this set is good and a history buff will enjoy the numerous first hand accounts of events that are recorded in the series. For the Price, it is well worth it. May we learn from history and not repeat it."

"How on earth can this DVD be anything but wonderful( if you can call war that)when Walter Cronkite is involved with it??? I dont care if he was talking about grass growing or sand in the desert I would still listen... Its World War II and he describes it completly . I dare say he made it informational and entertaining at the same time. Enjoy! I did!"
Must buy Must see

"What makes a good WWII retro-spect is the narration and information. Walter Cronkite has all of that PLUS he was there. He went in with the troops in Market Garden. Plus there is a lot footage you probably haven't seen.

Also a lot of time you see 3-disk set with makes it sound like lot of minutes. This 3-disk set delivers many hours"
