I have been waiting to purchase this copy for a while now and I was not disappointed at all! The image quality is incredible and what these men and women have gone through is beyond thought! Touching, disturbing and courageous stories.

Received my copy within a week of purchase! Thank you Amazon!

Excellent presentation, except: NO SUBTITLES!!!.
Yes those are capitals and 3 exclamation points. What were they thinking? An oversight like this for a documentary like this is inexplicable, unforgiveable, and infuriating! A great concept which shoots itself in the foot with the most basic flaw.

This Documentary is one of the greatest i have ever seen. Its very unbiased portrayal of the events leading up to and during WWII, was extremely refreshing and greatly educational. The use of real footage from the time period (in color) gives it an amazing sense of actually being there witnessing the events as they took place. I found myself riveted to the screen over two days as every fascinating moment, both awe inspiring and disturbing, was compelling to watch. I recommend this series to anyone who truly appreciates and wants to know the factual story behind one of the human races darkest and most industrious times in history.

One of the best WWII documentaries Nov. 20 2009
By Pangloss - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I have watched this series on the History channel and it is unbelievable. Although very graphic at times, the color footage is extrordinary and the comments by the veterans add a new dimension and at times will break your heart. Of all the WWII series I have seen this probably the best overall. The History channel has done a great job. I just wish the DVD was available right now. If you are at all interested in this part of US history or had a relative or friend who served in this war, you will want to get this series.

One of the best WWII mini-series ever Nov. 20 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
This came in a very close second in my favorite mini-series ever. Right behind Band of Brothers. Even though this series was different from B.o.B (being that the whole series was actual footage from WWII and not acting), it was still an amazing show to watch. Real footage from the war and interviews from actual soldiers that were in the war was perfect. Some of the video was graphic, but that made it real and worth watching. I rarely get teary eyed, but some of those interviews and some of the concentration camp footage, got to me. After seeing the first part, it makes you want to see more. And the other 9 parts of the series certainly delivered. I would highly recommend this to any World War buffs or to anyone who wants to see how much our veterans went through.

Why can't history classes be this interesting? Nov. 20 2009
By Keeva Cox - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
This entire series is masterfully done! Instead of a bunch of facts and figures delivered by the usual talking heads often seen in documentaries, this series focuses on 12 individuals that were on the front lines during the war. The battles of WWII are told in their own words, through their letters, reports, and interviews, making the entire documentary intensely personal. The narration provided by Gary Sinise seamlessly intertwines the personal accounts with the facts of the battles and strategies used, giving the viewer all of the background information they need to understand what's going on without being the least bit intrusive. The added backdrop of the never-before-seen color WWII footage of the events really makes it seem as if the viewer is right in the middle of the action; watching and experiencing everything for themselves. History teachers and textbook authors take note: this is how history should be taught!

Young people: You're scared of terrorists? Not after watching this... Nov. 20 2009
By David Vega - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This is the greatest documentary about the greatest story ever told. We think we are scared of terrorists....give me a break....terrorists are pimples on our posteriors compared to the fear the Nazis and Japs put the world through. Not only is this documentary visually breathtaking, but the meticulous research of each of the stories, the strategies of the war, and the perspective it gives the viewer is like nothing I've ever seen before. It truly proves that they were the greatest generation, the generation we should all strive to be. This documentary should be in every school...let the teacher close the book and pop this in as a history lesson because it can not be told better than this. I can't say enough about it. Jack Yusen was the best! "He went to go see his muddah on the back porch!"

Never forget Dec 28 2009
By TaeKwonDodo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I ordered this DVD set after watching the first episode on The History Channel. I think that we need to protect every bit of film, every photograph that preserves the memory of not only the great heroes of the greatest war ever, but the horror of what war is, so that we never, ever embark upon such a path again without first trying our damndest to find another way. This series shows color footage culled from hidden archives and personal collections, linked by the stories of various individuals who participated in some way or another - an infantryman, a pilot and author, a nurse, a Tuskegee airman, a Nisei, and more. Actors provide a surprisingly competent performance - giving voice to the thoughts and words of people who are long gone. Survivors are also interviewed, and it is clear that the memories of those events remain as clear now as they were sixty years ago. Some of the images are disturbingly graphic, so I do advise caution with watching with smaller children. The quality of some of the footage is rather poor, so don't be disappointed if the images are not crystal clear like the promised HD. Some of the sections were not particularly strong - the part profiling the Tuskegee Airman seemed rather thin - but I assume that there was a paucity of good footage, so I didn't really consider this to be that great a weakness. Very significant battles were entirely skipped over, but I think that it was beyond the scope of this project to completely summarize the entire war, nor do I think it necessary. I think that the series did what it set out to do - show us small glimpses into the world at war, give both evil and heroism a face, and make us remember even as the last survivors and their accounts fade away.
