In October 1941, the German 11th Army broke through the Soviet lines. A series of bloody battles ensued that cost the Russians 2 whole armies. However the tide turned after the German defeats at Stalingrad and Kursk. Cut off and isolated in the Crimea, th

5.0 out of 5 stars Original Complete Version is Best September 19, 2007
Format:DVD
I have the original Cromwell version that was reissued in the US in 2007. This is a fantastic program and is the same one that was broadcst on the Discovery Channel. Much of this footage is from Russian archives and has not been seen before. The earlier edition put out by Eagle is incomplete as noted in the other review. You want to own the Cromwell edition of this program. This is the original, full length version not the other truncated versions. Ironically, the complete version is actually cheaper that the abridged version. Go figure.

2.0 out of 5 stars Battle for the Crimea...a mixed bag July 24, 2010
Format:DVD
This review concerns the full length (150 minutes)Cromwell version of this program. The production is really a mixed bag. The best parts are the narration and maps, which provide the viewer with a very detailed explanation of the 1941-1945 campaigns in which the Axis conquered, then lost, the Crimean peninsula. The strategic considerations and operational obstacles faced by both sides are well covered. The video portion of the program is less satisfactory, particularly the lack of synchronization between the narrative and the onscreen images. Too often, the speaker describes an attack occurring in December while the screen shows German tanks raising clouds of dust on parched summer steppes, or one hears of the efforts made by Soviet troops to frantically fortify defensive positions while images play of German engineers at work. The films' repetitive use of the same video sequences (t-34s moving forward, tired troops trudging uphill, a single truck driving through a ruined landscape) to depict different actions occurring months apart is also quite frustrating. By far, the biggest disappointment for this viewer was being teased by a detailed description of the mammoth "Karl" and "Dora" siege guns firing against Sevastopol without being shown a single picture of them (the onscreen images are of lesser caliber K5 "Anzio Annie" type railroad guns on other fronts!). One is left with the cummulative impression that the film was made in two separate parts, which were hurriedly combined to produce a disjointed whole. It therefore pales in comparison to earlier films in the Battlefield series.

1.0 out of 5 stars Battlefield Series 6: Battle of the Crimea September 12, 2007
Format:DVD
This dvd opens with the title "Battle of the Crimea Part One". One big problem there is no Part Two!!! So the video ends with the build up to Manstein's attack on Sevastapol. The back cover clearly lists that the dvd includes all the events from October 1941 to the final German surrender in May 1944 - but not on my video !!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice detail May 12, 2013
By ksmith
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I expected nothing less than a good DVD and was not disappointed. For any Russian front buff or for someone who wants to get a snapshot of Von Manstein's genius. It clearly shows how superior training and flexibility were the trademark of the German Army the first two years in the east. It also shows how the Russians turned the tables on the Germans when they retook it in record time.

5.0 out of 5 stars I was amazed August 14, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I recently purchased this DVD, and I had no idea that there were different versions of this out there. But I think that I have the more complete Cromwell version. BUT, although I have watched most serious dvd's on World War 2, and I have read scores of books, this dvd was amazing. I never, never had a sense of how massive the battles for the Crimea were before watching this DVD. Stalingrad is known to everyone, but the battles in the Crimea during World War 2 were larger. The Germans were brilliantly led as they conquered the Crimea, but the Soviets eventually won it back. The battles were massive, larger than Stalingrad. The scenery, the shots of the Crimea are beautiful. This DVD is a buried treasure and I highly recommend it.
