"Was very pleased with this dvd, the films were clear & most new to me. Background information on the events was helpful, audio clean & a good combination of necessary sound effects & music - I will continue collecting this series."
A "small" part ..
John H. Borders | Louisville, KY United States | 01/17/2009

".. of the entirety of military, WW2 efforts .. was involved in the Balkan area. As it happened, the Balkan area was very-important in the final defeat of Nazi forces, and the DVD and it's use of combat footage, is probably "sui generis"/one-of-a-kind, in it's focus on a specific area of WW2 battles. .. This is a VERY-worthwhile DVD to own .. and it's part of the old "Battlefield" series."
Wrong historical info on product review- Balkan war dvd-

"Tha romanians changed sides in august 1944,not 1943 as specified in the product review section.Due to this change of sides,the war was shortened by at least 6 months,but credit was never given to the romanians for that historical about face.And no,they did not do it as suggested on this site,because of the heavy shelling-after all,the heaviest casualties suffered by the americans,sadly and regretfully,were in 1943 ,over the oil fields of Ploiesti-,but because it was the right,logical thing to do,and the will of the romanian people.If this turn of events would have never happened,the russian hordes would have had very tough times advancing towards Germany,fighting a desperate,but still lethal german army,and a highly motivated romanian army to defend their land,and also,the natural big obstacle of the Carpathian mountains."
