This item is perfect for a gift for any person interested in a very well presented "Anthology of War on Film Collection" which includes some of the greatest War films ever made.
The item is spread across a total of 20 Discs, 10 Movies in total, each movie is region locked to Region 1, so if you're an international buyer make sure you have a Region Free DVD Player.

The collection of 10 Movies contains a mixture of Special Editions, Collectors Editions or your Standard movie, however all movies are 2 Disc's each.
The majority of the Special and Collector Edition movies come with some form of Bonus / Extra content, some more than others, it really depends on whether it's a Standard Edition or a Special / Collectors Edition, however you are guaranteed to find some interesting content that you would normally find on a DVD in that category, the only exception is "Patton" which is the only Standard Edition movie in the Anthology collection.

With the intention to provide potential buyers a brief glimpse of how well some of these movies were received by critics and information regarding the films I will break down the movies that this Anthology contains, separating them into the contained various editions and providing the IMDB (Internet Movie Database) rating in the hope that people can get a sense of how highly rated certain films in this collection stand, I'll also include the IMDB link which will give you more information regarding each film, reviews and a brief synopsis. The list is as follows.

SPECIAL EDITIONS:
The Sand Pebbles (1966) - Ratings: 7.7/10 from 6,375 users - [...]
The Longest Day (1962)- Ratings: 7.7/10 from 24,838 users - [...]
Tora! Tora! Tora! (1970) - Ratings: 7.4/10 from 14,776 users - [...

I purchased this collection for my father and he was a fan of many of the films included in the collection. There's nothing bad about what's in the collection but when I read the description I did originally believe it included 20 different films. Thank you for the posts assisting with that clarification and I took the 1 star off for that confusing advertisement.

10 of the very best WWII movies. I finally found a used set and was thrilled. Every movie a great watch. Even though all have probably been seen on TV a lot, it is well worth it to me to have a nice picture and "no" commercials..If you find a set for less than a $20 total grab it while you can.The best collection I have ever seen.
