“A triumph from start to finish” —The Wall Street Journal

The hit PBS series set against the backdrop of World War II

“For mystery fans…a must see” —The Houston Chronicle
“Brilliantly explores the moral gray areas of war” —San Francisco Chronicle

The 22 mysteries in this collection follow the course of the war and its aftermath from 1940 to 1945.

Also starring Anthony Howell and Honeysuckle Weeks. Guest stars include Julian Ovenden, Corin Redgrave, Robert Hardy Charles Dance, Michael Jayston, Rosamund Pike, Amanda Root, James Wilby, Tim Pigott-Smith, David Tennant, and James McAvoy.

FOYLE'S WAR presents Brit Home Front war-life through poignant topics, compelling suspense, and many mirthful moments. It is a 1940-45 Southern country experience not to be missed. English WWII involvement and resulting life-style of the population away from the active war front when all England expects an eminent invasion from Germany.
3 episodes of Foyle's Post-War (summer 1945) are done in the same 6-YES, SIX-STAR excellence. Foyle longs for retirement, but it's not to be [great news for fans]. Period drama precision detailing history, drama, action, romance, mystery, and suspense

FOYLE'S WAR is also a series the best 21st century written TV murder mystery ever presented by creator/writer Anthony Horowitz. A modern classic for sure. Foyle's War is fiction, but so authentic to detail that this series is a MUST for historians.

Christopher Foyle (Michael Kitchen) is a cop who'd rather be on the front, not investigating Hastings crime. Milner (Anthony Howell) does much of Foyle's "leg-work" on an artificial limb. A female driver, "Sam" (Honeysuckle Weeks) is gorgeous with a winning smile. Perfect attention is given to the period details; sets, costumes, vehicles, architecture, even down to NO yellow road lines. Including facial expressions, performances are nothing short of perfection.

Numerous guest stars in each episode known stars seen in top Masterpiece Theatre productions. Additional post-war episodes airing in Sept, 2013. A set of all previous episodes to prepare the way for those new adventures.

This has got to be the best all-around British series ever. Where can you get British comedy, history, mystery and drama all in the same series and in every episode? Kudos to Horowitz for pulling the plots together. Kitchen is the master of non-verbal expression. The cast is well chosen and they interact with their special attributes. I've watched the series a dozen times and I'm still finding new things. Although each episode is it's own entity, the character development grows with the series, so it help at one time to watch it from beginning to end.It's the best buy in town and you can't beat the price. I've purchased this series for some friends who didn't care for TV series and they ended up inviting their neighbors over once a week for a "Foyle's" party. Start your own Foyle's Fan Club.

Okay, first of all, I have always loved this series, the stories and the actors. I figured it would be a good gift to give to my mom. She enjoys the Masterpiece programs, and likes to watch them again and again, sometimes as a "marathon." However, my mom doesn't like me to spend money on NEW DVDs for her. So, I try to find them on ebay or at the Goodwill-type stores in town. Sometimes, however, I do buy them new. Then I open them up before I mail them to Mom, so they appear to be used.

When I saw the boxed set at this really good price, I knew I had to get it for Mom. When the they arrived at my house, I made them look used, and then I mailed Mom the first couple of series for Mothers Day. Later this month, the next couple series will go out for her birthday, and so on.

Yes, it's a tad deceitful, but Mom likes a good DVD and a good bargain, so, why not?

As a huge fan of Brit mysteries and the quality of the programs they produce I find I have a new favorite among the DVDs I own. Foyles War is the best I have seen in a long time. I usually purchase most Brit mystery DVD made and have some of the best available in my collection. This series is unique and holds my interest continually. Michael Kitchen has an unusual talent in that he can say much with few words. His facial expressions tell it all. I highly incourage people to get this series....it is worth every dollar.

These series will always be amongst my collection. The main characters are so likeable & story lines very interesting. I wish we had more stories between the beginning & end of WW11. There is quite a gap. When I first began watching these series, I thought the low key Foyle would be a drag but he is anything but....I hope the central characters continue in future stories..

Loved every second on these DVDs, am thoroughly spoiled to just about anything else, better than Downton Abbey I, II and III, in my opinion.

I would give Foyle's War 5 stars for content. I gave it 4 because sadly, there were no captions. Even if you are not hard of hearing, the English chatter goes by so quickly and so many good "asides" are lost for lack of understanding. The series itself is amazing. Some confusion in the time frame. Events happened that we didn't see with the characters and we have to assume that a wedding took place or some closures were made to office buildings etc. All in all, I would not avoid this series because of that. I have already pre-ordered season 7. For value, it's makes sense to buy all 6 series in the box set. It is much less expensive. Enjoy!

closed captioning!
This doesn't make sense to me. At least, I don't understand something. So I'm hoping for a clarification. Does this mean that the DVDs will only work with closed captions on? Or does it simply clarify the method for accessing closed captions IF YOU WANT TO USE THEM? I'm sorry if this sounds... Read More

The Home Front Files?
This is actually the first 7 seasons as seasons 4 and 5 were released together as set 4 (there were only 2 episodes in each of those seasons). Hope this helps
