Being familiar with Ike's book, I wanted to add this DvD to my collection. I've read reviews stating the DvD was a let down and not recommending a purchase. This collection MUST be viewed in proper historical perspective to be truly appreciated.

First, one must realize when this was produced...shortly after the war. America was fresh off a horrible conflict in which many young men lost their lives. The images of wounded and killed American soldiers was deemed too gruesome for public consumption. It was a different time, long before our minds had been numbed to the daily grind of shocking news reports and the accompanying images.

Second, much of the footage now seen in various documentaries and productions simply had not been discovered. Most archives of Nazi regime propaganda and combat was not available...it was either classified or unknown at the time. They incorporated what footage was both available and palatable.

Third...this series was made for television. TV was in it's infancy. It would be almost 15 years before it was even 'acceptable' for a married couple to be seen sharing the same bed on a television show. Blood and guts were not acceptable TV material for the time.

In proper context, this is an EXCELLENT collection. I would highly recommend for the serious enthusiast.

I'd agree with Mr Wolfe that this is remarkably fair, considering when it was made. It is a dispassionate account of men getting on with a job that had to be done. The footage is superb, much of it new to me; names are pronounced correctly, something you don't always find in modern documentaries; and aspects which are often overlooked, such as supply, are well covered.

I bought this for my dad's birthday and we have greatly enjoyed watching it together. My mother has even joined us and found it interesting. A very good buy indeed.

Format: DVD
I never got to see CRUSADE IN EUROPE when it was broadcast, owing to the fact that I was born six years after it was shown on ABC. But it was a series I'd heard about for decades as the grandfather and template for such celebrated (and more often re-shown) efforts as VICTORY AT SEA, THE WORLD AT WAR, THE COMMANDERS etc. This DVD set finally allowed me to see the series, and it was not a disappointment -- working with the visual materials that were available (a fraction of what producers of THE WORLD AT WAR would have at their disposal), the makers succeed in telling their story, and the little personal quotations from Eisenhower's book add a unique perspective to the proceedings. Some of the technique is primitive by today's standards, and this is a sanitized look at the costs and horrors of the war -- home audiences in 1949 were not prepared for footage that was too graphic -- but well worth seeing.

Additionally, the materials seem to be in excellent condition -- the owners of this series have kept it in better shape than, say, NBC kept VICTORY AT SEA (a roughly comparable documentary series from about three years later), albeit with some upgrade and alteration in the late 1980s. MPI has also mastered the program with a good deal of satisfying consistency in the sound and image quality, and the discs are very handy to use, the programs easy to access etc. It's all a pleasure to watch, and if it gets some people to look a little longer at Eisenhower (and perhaps buy his book, which is still in print in 2013), so much the better -- we'll never know how good a battlefield commander or combat officer he might have been, but he was one of the great leaders and organizers in the history of the United States, in addition to being a great president (recognition for which seems finally to be coming his way in the twenty-first century).

This wonderful documentry based on President & General Eisenhower's book of the same name is excellent of the time (1951) utilizing film footage from all participants archives and produced by Time Magazine.Yes a little one sided in the commentary but considering that at that time we were engaged again on forign soil (Korea)and it was barely 6 years after WWII ended I think it is still fair in its accessments. The DVD arrived in a timely manner int the described condition. Very Pleased.
