I've read many reviews that say this is US or Israel leaned. What?! Do they expect it would be showing great victories for the Axis meaning Germans or Japanese killing British, Canadian or US pilots? No. It's showing victories and/or escapes versus all odds for the people that won the war.
I'm Canadian and though a Canadian shot down the Red Baron you don't see me complaining that they aren't in this. Nobody wants to see a war survivor from the opposite side talk about how they killed one of the Allies.
This focuses on pilots that have done amazing things in WWII amongst other wars. And to hear them tell the tale makes it that much more interesting since it isn't going to be another "Based on a true story" crap movie that we've seen full of lies. This is mostly from the real pilots that made it and lived to tell the tale.
If you want to learn from war and are interested at all in what happened, this is for you. Of course, the actual battles are CGI but not blown out of proportion so that you still have a sense of what happened and how great the pilots of the past were.
Well worth the watch, folks.

In fact this series cherrypicks israeli and US victories. So leaving a wrong impression about the air-wars, for the lesser educated.
The series had a lot of potential to portrait canadian, british, polish, czech, free french, dutch, norwegian, russian, finish, chinese, and australian aces, but it choose not to. It seems it was made only for israeli and US consumption.
This was one reason this series failed for history buff, that are interested in more complex details. The other reason it failed, was that there where no german, italian, spanish, hungarian, rumanian, bulgarian and japanese aces, from the opposite sites portrait, they where absolutely absent.
I hope the makers will consider to extent this otherwise not bad series to add the extra complexity to it. I might rethink my first dissapointment.
This series so far looks like an airforce recruitment tool for a videogame driven generation. Ducumentaries for the general puplic should not be crafted like this.

This is NOT the series for you if you want an impartial, objective account of fighter-vs-fighter combat as researched from all points-of-view like we've had for decades. It is neither a documentary nor scientifically researched.

This IS the series for you if you want to be known as promoting the propaganda that only American-Israeli fighter-heroics count throughout world history.

Mis-leadingly advertised in various countries as "all the greatest dogfights in history" and "all the greatest dogfights in the world", this series focuses almost solely on US-Israeli victories and NEVER represents US-Israeli fighter-vs-fighter defeats. That's propaganda, not history nor documentary.

It can't even stick to the definition of dogfights as being "aerial combat between two or more fighter planes."

Typical representation of the rare non-US-Israeli victories are an obsolete Swordfish torpedo hitting Bismark, obsolete Kamikazes and gunless German suicide planes, even Kamikaze mini-subs.

Even when representing a British fighter-plane, those involved in the series are so biased they had to use one of the rare American volunteers shooting down the likes of unarmed liason planes rather than one of the vast majority of Brit/Cdn Mosquito aces shooting down even 30 true fighters like the FW190.

Friend or foe, the series is no less offensive to the heroics and memory of non-American-Israeli fighter-pilots let alone fighter designs.

Typical themes are:
German Me262 jet-fighter downs RAF Mosquito, US P51D downs German Me262 jet-fighter.
US-Israeli fighter-pilots defeat many times their number of the best enemy fighter-planes, opposite for all others.

HASH(0xb2bd8dc8) out of 5 stars Greatest aviation dogfight documentary ever. April 28 2008
By Valnastar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Dogfights Season Two was every bit as exciting, thoughtful and well produced as Season One. Filled with many great interviews with actual participants in much of the action being documented, coupled with the "in the cockpit" feel of the show, there is no other documentary on the subject of dogfighting quite like it. Why the History Channel would cancel the best, most exciting and informative show they've ever produced at the peak of its popularity is still a mystery. Don't miss out on a chance to own this show on DVD while it is in print.

This DVD set contains all seventeen episodes from Season Two. Here's a list of episode titles:
Jet vs. Jet
Gun Kills of Vietnam
Desert Aces
The First Dogfighters
Luftwaffe's Deadliest Mission
No Room for Error
Night Fighters
The Bloodiest Day
P-51 Mustang
Dogfights of Desert Storm
Tuskegee Airmen
MiG Killers of the Midway
Death of the Luftwaffe
Secret Weapons

HASH(0xb2bd8e1c) out of 5 stars Season 2, better than the first! Jan. 6 2009
By Nakita - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
'Dogfights, season 2' is even better than the first season. Season 2 has 5 CD's instead of 4 that season 1 had, plus one extra battle per CD. This season has WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm and the Israeli Sx Day War.
I love both seasons. I watch them over and over again. If you want to watch air battles about famous aces like Robert S. Johnson, Robin Olds, Lee A. Archer and more. With air battles about the P-51, P-47, F-4, F-86, F-15, Mirage and more.
If you want to read about aces and air battles, then buy Osprey's 'Aircraft of the aces' books. If you want some action yourself, then buy 'IL-2 Sturmovik' and/or 'IL-2 F.B., A.E.P.', and if you want to watch air battles, then this is the documentry!
I'll always buy History Channel's 'Dogfights' series.

HASH(0xb2bde270) out of 5 stars Very Good Show April 20 2008
By Miggy - Published on Amazon.com

One of the best shows I have ever seen. The computer graphics depicting the dogfight put you right there. Plus they interview the pilots to give you inside information on what they were thinking and seeing. Very good series. Start with the "No Room For Error" episode. Highly recommended.

HASH(0xb2bde3cc) out of 5 stars A Nearly-Forgotten Chapter of History Oct. 14 2007
By Duane Browning - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I have always been fascinated with the fighter pilots of The First World War. So, when I saw "The First Dogfighters" available, I purchased it without hesitation.

This is not a live action recreation, but a computer-generated one. Yet, I felt my stomach lurch at the sudden, sharp turns these WW1 planes achieved, unlike anything you would see today. A large portion of pilots shotdown in combat died in their planes' crashes and this brought home to me the real risk these brave men, on both sides, accepted when they began their careers as fighter pilots in the Great War.

Flying by the seat of your pants in an open cockpit, while fighting an enemy whose face you could often see, is a type of aerial combat we are unlikely to see again. Even in the heat of battle and these men fighting each other to the death, there were incidents of real chivalry and respect between enemies. After he was shotdown behind enemy lines, even the "Red Baron", Manfred Albrecht Freiherr von Richthofen, was given a full British military funeral by the Australian Flying Corps.

While we may more readily remember the fighter pilots of the Second World War and our own pilots of today, the men who took to the air in the First World War were truely the Knights of the Sky and we may never see their kind again.

HASH(0xb2bde714) out of 5 stars Best Aviation Show Ever April 18 2008
By Douglas N. Castleman - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Best aviation show ever, and I've probably seen them all. Besides the great storytelling, the visuals are stunning. If you enjoy aviation history, this is the show for you. Too bad we're only getting two seasons of it out of the History Channel, as it is the best thing they've ever featured, IMHO.
