5.0 out of 5 stars BEST SERIES ON CANADA IN WW2, EVER!! March 23 2006
Format:DVD
I remember as a kid growing up in Canada viewing this series when it was first broadcast on the CBC in 1962 and later when it was shown in school (to the credit of the school which did this).Unlike later shameful revisionist films, such as the self-serving "Valor and the Horror", the "Canada at War" series provides an accurate comprehensive view of Canada's participation in the "first war on terrorism, WW2". Because it was made less than 17 years after the war, it was able to capture the public mood and sentiment of the time, a feat practically impossible through later productions. The 12 episodes cover the period prior to the war and every campaign Canadians fought. There is classic footage of the RCN, RCAF and Canadian Army in all theaters of the war. In addition, there is excellent information provided on the home front and Canadian political issues which formed a backdrop to the period. Producer Donald Brittain shined in creating this series. The soundtrack music is riviting and is a stand alone work of art. This is a work which best represents the National Film Board and the CBC before they were hijacked by left wing special interest groups during the late '60s and '70s. The DVD quality is fair to good quality. Extras not broadcast as part of the original series are included. As a proud son of a flier who served two tours with RCAF bomber command, I recommend this to any Canadian desiring to learn about this proud part of Canada's heritage and particularly recommend it to those with family members who served during that period, whether in the armed services or at home.

4.0 out of 5 stars My relative was a Major in the Canadian Army March 4 2014
By Maurice
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I research family history and one of my relatives was a major in the Canadian army in WW2. This box of four DVD's covers the Canadian involvement in WW2 in great detail with much original footage and is invaluable for someone who is especially interested in the Canadian contribution in WW2. It has given me a good insight into the many battles my relative fought in. I do think it would only be of interest to some one with a particular interest in Canada at war.
