Editorial Reviews

History s most thrilling aerial battles can now be experienced as never before from inside the cockpit. Legendary aircrafts like the F8 Crusader, the F6F Hellcat, the P40 Tomahawk, and more are brought back to life as DOGFIGHTS takes viewers straight into the heat of the aerial action.

You re in the cockpit as DOGFIGHTS: THE COMPLETE SEASON ONE follows these rarefied pilots over the skies of Guadalcanal, Korea, and Vietnam. Fabled fighter jocks from the dawn of dogfighting in World War I to Desert Storm are the top guns in DOGFIGHTS: THE COMPLETE SEASON TWO, while DOGFIGHTS OF THE FUTURE gives a fascinating preview of the next generation of fighter aircraft and tactics.

Every battle mixes rare archival footage, state-of-the-art CGI graphics and exciting, vivid narration from the original pilots for a heart-pounding, immersive aerial experience.

Dogfights is an amazing and unique documentary TV series originally broadcast on the History Channel.

This DVD collection of Dogfights series 1 & 2 consists of twenty eight episodes, plus some extras, on a total of nine DVDs.

Each episode contains superb and realistic computer generated graphics, designed to place you right there in the dogfight.

Incredible feats of human bravery are expertly demonstrated and narrated, as man and machine go head to head in the theatres of aerial combat throughout the 20th century.

Tactical descriptions and life and death situations are told by the fighter jocks themselves, mostly with an American slant.

Flight dynamics and aerial maneuvers are dissected and demonstrated with dynamically exciting and realistic CGI graphics animation, and also including some original footage.

Fantastic camera angles, fast paced action and the fascinating narration makes this documentary the most exciting and interesting documentary series on fighter aircraft I have ever seen.

Phantoms, Hellcats, Sabres, Tomahawks, Wildcats, Thunderbolts, Mustangs, Fokker Triplane's, F-15's, Vietnam, WWI, WWII, Middle East, Europe, Korea and the Pacific are just some of the aircraft and operations covered.

If you like fighter aircraft, you'll love this.

Seasons One and Two of "Dogfights" compliment each other so well that I highly recommend buying both disc sets at one time.

The CGI is fabulous. The resulting visuals are 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 two sets of nine discs have some really beautiful highlights: "Long Odds", a segment that features "Old 666", a B-17 outfitted with thirteen .50 calibre machine guns and heavier armament. That Flying Fortress was tasked with the reconnaissance of Japanese troop movements over various land locations. Old 666 was involved in a 45-minute dogfight, facing an overwhelming Japanese presence. Its pilot, Jay Zeamer won the Medal of Honor for his heroism. Ultimately, the crew of Old 666 became the most Highly decorated B-17 crew of WWII. A great story.

"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.

This is an excellant documentary style representation of airplane fights during several wars from WWI to the Gulf War. It disects the confrontations between each aircraft, showing several defensive tactics while using computer generated images as well as actual combat footage. It is well worth the purchase.

I found these Dvds to be beyond all expectations. The graphics are outstanding and the content is of extreme high quality. There is so much information crammed into these Dvds. Truly educational.

The CGI were fantastic. Most of all, it is not 2nd, 3rd or 4th hand history. It is told, for the most part by the people that were really there. Being a history buff I couldn't have asked for any better. As usual the items from Amazon arrived on time and in good condition.

The animation was well done and the pilot interviews were interesting. I was a bit disappointed that these air battles are told from the allied (actually, just the American) side only. It would have been interesting to hear some other viewpoints. Still, this series is well worth watching if you're a history buff, if you like aviation or if you just admire and respect the courage of these pilots, many of whom were only 20 or so years old.

They've taken a superb, marvelous series... and letterboxed the original 16:9 aspect ratio. It's smooshed and flattened, black barred on the top and bottom with a flattened, distored center. The menu page is correct and full screen, but each episode which follows has been incorrectly post-produced. Shame on History Channel for allowing the contractor to do this. I am terribly disappointed. This incredible show should be in Blu-Ray full screen in all its finite detail. Sad. Very sad.

Season 1 & 2 of Dogfights have been fansinating to watch. I have used both editions as gifts to young aviators that are learning the history of military aircraft. Not only are the actual dogfights illustrated with fantastic computer graphics, but individuals that lived and flew those missions are often giving additional commentary. Great buy for any aviator interested historic events involving aircraft.
