Product Description

For nearly a decade, the legendary World War II aircraft carrier USS Enterprise held a pivotal place on the turbulent seas of war, engaging in some of the fiercest multi-front battles ever witnessed in modern combat. The only carrier to be front and center in every major sea conflict in the Pacific, the Enterprise and her crew's battles were marked by by intense firepower, instinct and a 360°-coordination between surface ships, the aircraft above, and the submarines below. In each episode using incredible CGI visualizations, BATTLE 360° follows the Enterprise and its men through another conflict of WWII as they fight off the enemy from the air, sea, and underwater.

BATTLE 360°: THE COMPLETE SEASON ONE includes all 10 original episodes on 3 discs.

BONUS FEATURE: Additional Scenes

There have been lots of documentaries on the Second World War and more specifically on the Pacific War. Some good such as the World at War, Battlefield's Greatest Sea Battles and my personal favourite Victory at Sea; others not so good. But this Battle 360 series is definitely unique. There's nothing else even remotely like it!

First of all it's done in mostly CGI format similar to the Dogfights series or the Greatest Tanks series that is also done by these folks. Using CGI to show the battles in a way that simply couldn't be done with just film footage. While some may object to this, it definitely allows them to show scenes that never got filmed such as the night heavy cruiser battle at Guadalcanal as one example. And they do intersperse the CGI with some film clips and more importantly interviews with as many veterans as they could find.

The other thing that makes this series unique is that the entire Pacific War is seen through the prism of the U.S.S. Enterprise. The most highly decorated American warship of World War II! With any other ship, this would normally be too restrictive. But here it actually works since the Enterprise was the only American warship that was involved in every major battle of the Pacific except Pearl Harbour and the Battle of the Coral Sea. So you start with the preliminary skirmishing, progress to the battle of Midway, come to the episode in the war where the Enterprise is the only functioning carrier left (appropriately entitled Enterprise vs. Japan), then less than a year later is part of an armada of over 16 american carriers, the battle of Leyte Gulf where the Imperial Navy was shattered once and for all and finally Victory! It's a fascinating progression!

It's not perfect of course.

This is a perfect gift for any serious World War II buffs. The Enterprise was one of the most storied airraft carriers from the War in the Pacific. I bought this for my brother in-law who pretty much knows everything about WWII and he had this series on his wishlist. Having it in Blu-ray lets you watch in in high definition. Enjoy!

HASH(0x9a700da4) out of 5 stars Battle 360: Complete Season 1 Blu Ray Feb. 14 2011
By Simon - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Perhaps the most authorotative visual documentary style on WWII in the Pacific focusing on the U.S.S. Enterprise carrier set against stunning computer generated visual graphics that take you into the heart of the battle. Cleverly choreographed scenes derived from actual living [and deceased] eye witness reports, - true-life accounts of the Enterprise's exploits and the airmen who served and fought aboard this most intrepid of WWII carriers to ever see such distinguished combat service in the Pacific ocean.

The Blu Ray version is excellent in HD, and has 'user friendly' graphics to easily help navigate your way around episodes and/or chapters in the Enterprise's history right up until her painful post-war decommissioning and eventual scrapping.

Soundtrack is only two-channel however, [left and right, - not surround] but most up-to-date HDMI equipped amplifiers will give you listenable 'incremental surround' if that's your liking. Emphasis here would be on actual period news footage, narration, interviews with surviving servicemen, aided by state of the art computer graphics or CGI, with nice textures and realism to the airplanes and ships involved.

Episode one includes stunning CGI re-enactment of a Japanese G4M 'Betty' bomber 'slicing across' Enterprise's rear deck with her stbd wingtip, - slicing off a parked Douglas Dauntless's tailplane as the rear gunner fires undauntedly at the doomed Betty as she scythes/cart-wheels into the see just off of her stern in a huge fountain of water and debris....

Great stuff for war buffs and history fanatics, like me!

HASH(0x9a700fcc) out of 5 stars Nice Great Newer History July 10 2011
By Mr Leroy L Beavers Jr - Published on Amazon.com

I had never heard of this series before. But since I am into Navy History of course this got my attention. The anime is great. Yes Great. I know some men don't like anime. But this one is really special. Computer Anime makes this one really better to understand, since some of the action is not available for real life action. Thanks who ever thought of doing it this way.

Battle 360 effectively combines interviews with facts and stories, and then enhances them with high quality 3D animation. You often find yourself in the "edge of your seat" as you wonder what will happen to USS Enterprise!
