A must have for every WW2 fanatic.
I would highly recommend it!!
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.Read more ›

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.Published on July 9 2014 by ahung
