Editorial Reviews

In August 1943 the Romanians--no doubt prompted by merciless Allied bombing--changed sides. Thereafter, events moved swiftly: the Russians soon captured the vital Ploesti oil fields, a huge loss to the German war effort, and within days the Soviets captured Bucharest. A nervous Bulgaria sued for peace with the Allies, but the Russians pushed on into Sofia. Despite German delaying tactics, Hungary fell next. In Yugoslavia the Germans held grimly on to Belgrade until October. The bloody mop-up fighting was left to the Soviets and lasted until the end of the war.

This episode is from the landmark television series Battlefield. Featuring fascinating archive footage from all over the world, the program includes a review of the political and military situation before the battle, portraits of leaders and commanders, an explanation of weapons and tactics, and the story of the battle itself. Vivid graphics place the battle into the context of the war as a whole.

Was very pleased with this dvd, the films were clear & most new to me. Background information on the events was helpful, audio clean & a good combination of necessary sound effects & music - I will continue collecting this series.

.. of the entirety of military, WW2 efforts .. was involved in the Balkan area. As it happened, the Balkan area was very-important in the final defeat of Nazi forces, and the DVD and it's use of combat footage, is probably "sui generis"/one-of-a-kind, in it's focus on a specific area of WW2 battles. .. This is a VERY-worthwhile DVD to own .. and it's part of the old "Battlefield" series.

While there is some good film in this and some good information the presentation is rather disjointed, the program jumps back and forth in time rather than weaving the whole commentary in a way the makes chronological sense.

Tha romanians changed sides in august 1944,not 1943 as specified in the product review section.Due to this change of sides,the war was shortened by at least 6 months,but credit was never given to the romanians for that historical about face.And no,they did not do it as suggested on this site,because of the heavy shelling-after all,the heaviest casualties suffered by the americans,sadly and regretfully,were in 1943 ,over the oil fields of Ploiesti-,but because it was the right,logical thing to do,and the will of the romanian people.If this turn of events would have never happened,the russian hordes would have had very tough times advancing towards Germany,fighting a desperate,but still lethal german army,and a highly motivated romanian army to defend their land,and also,the natural big obstacle of the Carpathian mountains.

This sendup is part of the "Battlefield" series and as such is very well done. However, (there is usually an however, isn't there?) it substitutes a lot of other war information for actual testimony and evidence of the importance of the Balkans in this conflict. Possibly because the hatreds that have existed for the last couple of thousand years are yet alive and well in the present time. When commenting on the participation of the various combatants in this theater the text always has to refer to the divisions within the factions themselves and the obvious glee with which they so happily betray each other for their own political, religious or ethnic joy in slaughter. These machinations will again, no doubt, display themselves in gratuitous evil once again soon. Maybe the writers should take the courageous stand of calling the different sides into the court of judgement for their eternal guilt in these arenas and forego political correctness which is temporary at best ... sammy
