4.0 out of 5 stars 100 hours of military history documentaries January 16, 2009
AMERICA: STORIES OF WAR from MILL CREEK ENTERTAINMENT is a 24 disc war documentary set-- a total of 100 hours of programming. All DVDs are single-side, dual-layer recorded. Several of the documentaries included here are licensed exclusively to this manufacturer. Audio and video transfer quality is generally quite good, but does depend in some cases on condition of vintage stock footage.

This package is also available in combination with the COMBAT CLASSICS 50 MOVIE PACK in the AMERICA: STORIES OF WAR 36 DVD COLLECTION. This unique set comes stored in a sturdy replica ammo box, along with a 40-page contents booklet.

Overview of DOCUMENTARIES--

AMERICA DIVIDED (2008) - Includes vintage maps, photos, newspapers and art, plus re-enactor footage and animated break-downs of troop movements during battle. Narration: Ray Foushee. Superior transfer quality.

THE WAR TO END WAR (2008) - Rare vintage films and photos, plus animated maps tell the story of the first global conflict of 1914-18. Narrator: Fred North. Good quality transfer.

GREAT BATTLES OF WORLD WAR II - Various contemporary U.S. gov't and studio shorts report the war's progress. Most show actual battle footage captured by Signal Corp and other cameramen. With contributions from Hollywood actors, directors and crews. Most films are in remarkably good condition for their age.

WAR IN EUROPE and WAR IN THE PACIFIC - "Europe" consists of 26 chapters while "Pacific" has 24. Certain segments appear dark. Some include modern narration. Hard to identify these as none have original credits.

There is much here. The Civil War videos were good, as they take the viewer through the war with re-enactments and photos. Fair, even-handed and informative, as well as entertaining.

The World War I portion was easily the WORST of the lot. It had a chance to be very good, but they employ a narrator who clearly was over his head with this assignment. If you want to describe the First World War, you had better be comfortable pronouncing the names of French, Russian and German generals and statesmen, as well place names. If not, get some help with people who do. I found myself getting constantly distracted with the awful mis-pronunciations, and that made it hard to enjoy the films, which otherwise actually included some great footage. (Maybe I should listen with the sound turned down?)

The World War II discs were clearly the best. I'll take off a few points for the propaganda, but the footage was spectacular, and many included some very useful maps and diagrams which helped understand some of the progress of the war, especially on the Pacific side.

Both the Korea and Vietnam films were marred by the fact that they were all made by the government, and (like WWII) made contemporary to the war. But once again, some great footage, and there was much to be both informative and entertaining.
