Editorial Reviews

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

DISC ONE (4 episodes, approx 232 min): Call to Duty / Vengeance at Midway / Jaws of the Enemy / Bloody Santa Cruz

DISC TWO (3 episodes, approx 174 min): Enterprise vs. Japan / The Grey Ghost / Hammer of Hell

DISC THREE (3 episodes, approx 174 min): D-Day in the Pacific / Battle of Leyte Gulf / The Empire s Last Stand / Bonus

Customer Reviews

Third, the sound production is very poor.

The viewer gets all of the data on Japanese and American ships and planes, plus detailed accounts of each battle the USS Enterprise participated in.
Jeffrey T. Munson
Although I love all things History Channel related, this show is extremely biased towards the American account of the Pacific theater of WWII.

I am thrilled to have this released so quickly onto DVD. It just ended on the History Channel, and three months is a good turnaround time.

I am a little biased in my anticipation, as my grandfather is one of the veteran "stars" of this series. (My last name is the same as his in case you are interested.) He appeared in seven of the ten episodes and, as one of the sailors who served on board Enterprise during the entire war, I couldn't be prouder of him!

Anyway, my intent was not to just review my grandfather's role in the show, as this is really a terrific series. There is a good blend of veterans and current "field experts" to give a variety of angles. Some of the heroics outlined truly give you chills, and the story of this amazing ship is phenomenal.

There is a ton of CGI, and this could perhaps be both the strength and weakness of the show. I know my grandfather grew weary of it and felt it was ridiculous, but at the same time it gave us re-enactments of some of the battles that would otherwise not be possible. Overall, the CGI gave a dimension to this series that really blows you out of the water (no pun intended.)

If you are a history buff, Navy buff, or WW2 buff, you should watch this show. You'll get a fantastic snapshot of a fantastic ship whose story is unequaled by any other American ship during WW2.

Format: DVD
For content, this series has it all. This ten-episode epic on the history of the USS Enterprise (CV-6) during WWII is an insightful, all-encompassing look at one significant thread of the Pacific campaign. Like the Forrest Gump character, the Big E seems to be at nearly every famous and significant moment in this bloody conflict. Of note, each episode is about 55 minutes long, so you really get your money's worth.

As for the production, it is a mixed bag. The production in all areas is extremely similar to the History Channel's "Dogfights".

First, CGI is mixed liberally with historical footage, some of which may not be from the actual event referenced. If you are not a fan of using copious amounts of CGI to tell a story, you may not enjoy this. Note, the viewer cannot mistake the CGI for the real thing.

Second, interviews are conducted with both actual participants and modern "experts". The interviews with actual participants are priceless. The modern personnel are a bit less so.

Third, the sound production is very poor. An over-emphasis on sound effects constantly drowns out the dialog. This is especially offensive when it steps over the soft spoken veterans whose tales are so inspiring. Deafening explosions are interspersed with quiet dialog, making the audio frustrating and, at times, painful.

This series could have been a bit better with a little more attention to production values.

All in all, a worthy tribute to the gallant E and her heroic crews. I thank you for your service. May God Bless each and every one of you.

I loved the show and purchased the DVDs as soon as they were released and have thought long and hard about what kind of rating to give this series. I finally decided that, unlike some of the other reviewers, I simply could NOT give it 5 stars for one simple reason - am I the only one who got sick of, or even noticed, the use of some of the same graphics over and over again!?!?

For the time and care they spent/used correctly identifying the different classes of ships, both USN and IJN, and then generating the different graphics representing each different class of ship/type of plane, it is almost unforgivable that they often used the wrong one when it came time to produce each individual episode!

The most glaring example that comes to mind was the repeated use of the Hornet and Enterprise sailing together during the Doolittle raid sequence. I saw it several more times in later episodes, when every self-respecting Navy and/or military history buff knows that the Enterprise was the ONLY Yorktown class carrier left after Guadalcanal. But there it was in later episodes, those supposedly depicting 1944, another Yorktown class carrier sailing right next to "The Lucky E" - big as day!

Almost as bad was, during the battle of Savo island sequence, they showed the correct profile for the Vincennes (Chicago class) but, during the action scenes, they repeatedly used the graphic for the Indianapolis class, with its huge observation tower over the forward superstructure. Another glaring example, also during the first Guadalcanal episode was when they showed the same graphic for the Fleet carrier Shokaku and the Light carrier Ryujo (which didn't even have a super structure)!

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!
