Editorial Reviews

Over 16 Hours of Dramatic Documentary Footage

This game-changing war still resonates today with the U.S. troops presence in South Korea and the nascent nuclear threat fron the North. This collection of documentary footage chronicles the roots of the conflict as it blossomed into a protracted war that took a heavy toll in American blood and treasure. The immediacy of combat and major conflicts are brought vividly to life capturing the impact of this war on a generation and an entire region.

Customer Reviews

Did not provide an accurate chronological depiction of the war.
A. Moore
I served in Korea shortly after the "cease fire", and purchased this DVD for its historical content.
John J. Sheehan
It provided good coverage of both the ground and air operations and the value of each.

Hsaving served during the Korean War, the DVDs brought back memories. Some of the merories I would just as soon forget. The coverage of the war was excellent. It provided information that was not normally known by those who served outside of Korean. The DVDs provided a good idea of the mountainous country our service men and to climb and the difficulties the mountains provided. It provided good coverage of both the ground and air operations and the value of each.

This is another great package at a great price made by timeless media. This one has all of the Universal newsreels in chronological order. This serves to present you with something nostalgic, but also to show the propaganda that the american public was shown. You only get half the story here from the standpoint of the us military censors. This does include some great footage, but mostly in rear areas. This is a must have for Korean war history, even though other sources are needed for an accurate representation.

Recently developed a strong interest in learning as much as possible about the Korean War. Watched a few good series on PBS and the History Channel, so I went looking for DVDs on Amazon. Really disappointed in this offering. Here's why:

The product description states the program is "a collection of documentary footage." In fact, it is a collection of newsreel shorts they used to play in movie theaters between features. I guess you could describe that as documentary footage, but it is not documentary in the traditional sense of the term. This is slightly misleading.

Everything else about the offering (packaging, quality of film-to-video transfer) was completely first-rate.

If you are interested in the newsreel shorts produced during the Korean War, then this will be a valuable addition to your collection. For my money, did not find it interesting at all.

The Korean War has been terribly under-represented in both print and documentary. The late David Halberstam's work, "The Coldest Winter," should hopefully rekindle some interest in it. This war certainly deserves better than this documentary. As typical of Timeless Media, this is really a series of newsreels of with a heavy dose of propaganda (decisively anti-Communist as a sign of the McCarthy era) trying to pass itself off as a "documentary" to the unsuspecting buyer. While slightly better than "The Great War: WWI" another disappointing production of Timeless Media, it is, by no means, definitive.

Those seeking a more comprehensive examination of the Korean conflict would be better served by other series available elsewhere like, for instance, "The History Channel." Buyer Beware...$9.99 is too much to pay for this set; I purchased mine at Ross-Dress for Less for only $4.99.

I missed the real impact of the Korean War because I was working as a reporter in the Middle East. The DVD came up recently and I seized the opportunity to see the "forgotten" war, or in my case "missed" war. The DVD is based on consecutive newsreels which tell the story of how the war started, the allies who fought, the McArthur situation, and how the war ended, setting up a political situation that is with us today. A great DVD for students, the curious and veterans. Highly recommended.

For the men and women who fought in this desolate "Police Action" I salute you. We forget how many men and women died in Korea in those three short years; 54,000+. We lost that many in Vietnam after eleven long years of battle. To claim this was only a "Police Action" was a serious blunder by Harry Truman and the United Nations. As the intro constantly reminds the viewer, "this is war."

I know it would have been in poor form for the United States Signal Corp to make mention of why the Chinese became so heavily involved and attacked our brave men while enjoying Thanksgiving Dinner. MacArthur was told numerous times "not to bomb the Yalu bridges," or else. We found out what the or else was and Truman was forced to relieve MacArthur. Even after his brilliant execution of the Inchon Amphibious Assault he let his glory go to his head and decided he knew better then Washington. This is the problem when the glories of military victory are attempted to be parlayed into political positioning. Once again, MacArthur skated out with no appreciable damage. Wait no damage? Ask the Army and Marines at the Chosin Reservoir who paid for his arrogance with their blood.

I read many of the reviews that cater to the notion this a propaganda package. Look at the time frame when this was made. We were embroiled in the "Cold War" with Russia and her satellites. Is it full of American Propaganda? Yes. Was it a bit overpowering at times? Yes. But in reality it was perfect for its era. This was a recruiting tool for the Armed forces. Because of the current world atmosphere concerning Communism the Army was hoping to instill a volunteer army instead of obtaining men through conscription. We knew what Russia was capable off after the Berlin Airlift, but what of China?

This set has been maligned by some reviewers for being propaganda from the Cold War and to a degree it is, but still the basics of the conflict are presented. If you want an accurate overview of the Korean War, get the Timeless Media Group set "Korea: The Forgotten War" (I know, they're all called that - you'll have to look for the studio name); that set gives the basic rundown of the war with interviews of veterans and historians. For my part, I have plenty of books on the Korean War to get an idea of what it was about; I wanted films from that era, free from editing, and that's what this set is. This set is a collection of installments of "The Big Picture", a TV show produced by the Army to show the folks at home what Korea was like. The Pusan Perimeter, the battle of Taejon, the retreat from the Yalu in the bitter cold are all covered. So if you want scenes of the same tank rolling past some trees over and over again with commentary by fat, smug historians, get the Timeless Media Group set; if you want the original footage, get this one. I've watched mine several times already.
