5.0 out of 5 stars Apolcalypse WW2 Documentary May 28 2011
By AnnAlt
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is absolutely awesome. We started watching parts of this documentary in history class. I decided it would be fun to buy it. We had started watching it in French (french immersion), as it is originally a French film. The images are stunning and the footing is phenomenal. One thing I love is that the movie is not at all biased. Although it is from France, the producers did their best to show every view point. It is fantastic.I am just on the third disc. The war is impeccably covered from start to finish. This is great! Buy this movie. It is a wonderful document. Every single scene was filmed at the time (nothing was re-shot in a studio). Re-coloured scenes!
A must have for every WW2 fanatic.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Keeper April 17 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
An antimilitarist, I am a great appreciator of WWII documentaries. And as a teacher of visual media, I'm especially appreciative of this one. I've watched it three times online, but the part on Pearl Harbor and the American entry into the war is not accessible "for reasons of copyright," so I must have my own copy, which I'm in the process of ordering here. The new footage makes for a more balanced view -- i.e., neither Britain nor the US is celebrated as the war's "star," and we get to see much more Russian footage than we're used to. And since it's been a long time since we've come to understand that the French capitulation rather than the French resistance was the norm, it's good to have that covered more clearly. (Well, this is a French production, after all.) Footage from private sources adds a human touch to a profoundly inhuman event.

WWII docs should be able to draw you into the gut-wrenching fear and horror of it, since it was the most fearsome and horrible of wars to date. It helps if this horror is accompanied by a superb soundtrack -- and this one is the best I've heard. The bombs, guns, and tank-treads sound as if they were all on the original footage, not dubbed in years later. The brilliant Japanese composer Kenji Kawai has written a heart-pounding, appropriately apocalyptic musical score. Those who know Kawai's work will recognize him twelve bars into the first episode. Most of the old black-and-white footage is colorized, which has a way of making the events more immediate.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best War Documentaries July 25 2012
By Kashif
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I would say this is one of the best war documentaries I have seen. Very unbiased and shows you true, uncensored, horror and brutality of war. I must say most documentaries try to make viewers opionion, by deliberatly showing one side or one angle. THis doesnot do that. Also music is amazing. It is by Kenji Kawai.

I would highly recommend it!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Must see Dec 12 2012
By Jazz
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
If you love history, this is a MUST in your collection. Amazing compilation of footage telling the WWII history in a way you have never seen. I learnt a lot about Japanese commitment to the war, France reaction at being attached and much more. Narration is impeccable. Totally recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Series! Aug. 14 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have made it a point to watch as many historical military documentaries regarding world conflicts and I have to say, this series was among the best I have had the pleasure of watching. The colourization just adds to the enjoyment of the series, bringing to life a very dark, but important historical event.

One of the best documentaries of WWII (I've seen many), because the footage is real, not cut and fragmented, and well cleaned up so that it can pass for footage from nowadays.
