Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

High above the ground, at speeds reaching thousands of miles per hour, fighter aircraft face off in some of the most intense battles in the history of warfare. HISTORY brings these battles to life in DOGFIGHTS, a riveting documentary series that follows the development of air combat from the planes of the First World War to showdowns between the most cutting-edge aircraft flown today.

The second season of this wildly popular series features first-hand accounts of the flying aces themselves, combined with rare archival footage and state-of-the-art CGI graphics. Each air battle is recreated in stunning detail, putting viewers in the cockpit, facing the enemy. From Fokker triplanes and SE5s dueling over Belgium and F86s and MiG-15s battling in the skies above North Korea to World War II's P-51 Mustang and the American F-15s that fought in Operation Desert Storm, DOGFIGHTS: THE COMPLETE SEASON 2 puts viewers right in the cockpit to relive 17 of modern history's greatest battles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Greatest aviation dogfight documentary ever. April 28, 2008
Format:DVD
Dogfights Season Two was every bit as exciting, thoughtful and well produced as Season One. Filled with many great interviews with actual participants in much of the action being documented, coupled with the "in the cockpit" feel of the show, there is no other documentary on the subject of dogfighting quite like it. Why the History Channel would cancel the best, most exciting and informative show they've ever produced at the peak of its popularity is still a mystery. Don't miss out on a chance to own this show on DVD while it is in print.

This DVD set contains all seventeen episodes from Season Two. Here's a list of episode titles:
Kamikaze
Jet vs. Jet
Thunderbolt
Gun Kills of Vietnam
Desert Aces
The First Dogfighters
Luftwaffe's Deadliest Mission
No Room for Error
Night Fighters
The Bloodiest Day
P-51 Mustang
Dogfights of Desert Storm
Tuskegee Airmen
MiG Killers of the Midway
Supersonic
Death of the Luftwaffe
Secret Weapons

5.0 out of 5 stars Season 2, better than the first! January 6, 2009
Format:DVD
'Dogfights, season 2' is even better than the first season. Season 2 has 5 CD's instead of 4 that season 1 had, plus one extra battle per CD. This season has WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm and the Israeli Sx Day War.
I love both seasons. I watch them over and over again. If you want to watch air battles about famous aces like Robert S. Johnson, Robin Olds, Lee A. Archer and more. With air battles about the P-51, P-47, F-4, F-86, F-15, Mirage and more.
If you want to read about aces and air battles, then buy Osprey's 'Aircraft of the aces' books. If you want some action yourself, then buy 'IL-2 Sturmovik' and/or 'IL-2 F.B., A.E.P.', and if you want to watch air battles, then this is the documentry!
I'll always buy History Channel's 'Dogfights' series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Show April 20, 2008
By Matt
Format:Amazon Instant Video
One of the best shows I have ever seen. The computer graphics depicting the dogfight put you right there. Plus they interview the pilots to give you inside information on what they were thinking and seeing. Very good series. Start with the "No Room For Error" episode. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Nearly-Forgotten Chapter of History October 14, 2007
Verified Purchase
I have always been fascinated with the fighter pilots of The First World War. So, when I saw "The First Dogfighters" available, I purchased it without hesitation.

This is not a live action recreation, but a computer-generated one. Yet, I felt my stomach lurch at the sudden, sharp turns these WW1 planes achieved, unlike anything you would see today. A large portion of pilots shotdown in combat died in their planes' crashes and this brought home to me the real risk these brave men, on both sides, accepted when they began their careers as fighter pilots in the Great War.

Flying by the seat of your pants in an open cockpit, while fighting an enemy whose face you could often see, is a type of aerial combat we are unlikely to see again. Even in the heat of battle and these men fighting each other to the death, there were incidents of real chivalry and respect between enemies. After he was shotdown behind enemy lines, even the "Red Baron", Manfred Albrecht Freiherr von Richthofen, was given a full British military funeral by the Australian Flying Corps.

While we may more readily remember the fighter pilots of the Second World War and our own pilots of today, the men who took to the air in the First World War were truely the Knights of the Sky and we may never see their kind again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Aviation Show Ever April 18, 2008
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Best aviation show ever, and I've probably seen them all. Besides the great storytelling, the visuals are stunning. If you enjoy aviation history, this is the show for you. Too bad we're only getting two seasons of it out of the History Channel, as it is the best thing they've ever featured, IMHO.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding! March 14, 2009
Format:DVD
This five dvd set has some really beautiful highlights. The CGI is fabulous. The resulting episodes are visually arresting - much more lifelike than actual combat footage, which tends to be grainy or washed out. The CGI is so accurate that even the reflections on the fuselage of each aircraft follow the sun as the pilots maintain an orbit above or around a target, or pursue their enemy. The sequences of aerial combat are very fluid and very close to the sort of dogfight scenarios that one might visualize without having had the actual experience of air combat.

"The Luftwaffe's Deadliest Mission" depicts the unique mission of the SonderKommando Elbe, and elite group of German pilots mustered together in a last ditch effort to stop the allies from entering Deutchland: Using stripped down ME109's, the mission of each pilot was to seek out and ram Allied B-17 and B-24's in Kamikaze fashion. The CGI is great, but the interviews with two of the surviving pilots is especially interesting.

Also noteworthy is "The Tuskegee Airmen" which goes into specific detail about the heroic exploits of the Brave African-Americans who flew P-51 Mustangs in covering missions for the B-24's and B-17's that flew combat missions in the skies over Romania and southern Europe.

Other Highlights: "Death of the Luftwaffe" chronicles Operation Bodenplatte, which took place on New Year's day, 1945 against a forawrd American airbase in Europe; And "Secret Weapons" which are accurate depictions of the ME-262, the Kamikaze, and remotely controlled airplanes.

The air war in Korea is included in the episodes, "Supersonic" and "Jet vs. Jet". Again, great CGI. Ace Pilots Frederick "Boots" Blesse, Robbie Risner and Ralph Parr give great commentary.
