Editorial Reviews

It s an entirely new way to look at warfare. From ferocious battles waged by USS Enterprise, the most decorated aircraft carrier of World War II, to death-defying dogfights involving hero pilots and lethal planes, this 14-disc set from HISTORY uses cutting-edge CGI to plunge you into the actual missions, reproduced with historical accuracy and startling realism.

BATTLE 360 tracks the Enterprise and its men as they fight off the enemy from the air, sea and underwater. 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.

The ship, the aircraft, the bravery, and most of all, the heroes they're all here in MILITARY COMBAT.

5.0 out of 5 stars Two Outstanding History Channel Series February 6, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This set consists of Season One of Battle 360 which is focused entirely on the combat exploits of the Aircraft Carrier, U.S.S. Enterprise. In my opinion this is one of the History Channel's best true history series, and uses elaborate computer graphic re-enactments, interwoven with real combat footage to tell the chronological history of this great ship. In Battle 360 the combat history of the Enterprise is accurately and engagingly told. Battle 360 is literally big-picture narrative history as done by the old History Channel at its very best. By the same token, Seasons I and II of Dogfights, is also one of the old History Channel's all-time best series, spanning aerial combat from WW I through Desert Storm. In contrast to Battle 360, Dogfights does an excellent job of dissecting small air combat encounters, using interviews of actual pilots and state-of-the-art computer graphic re-enactments. But the small encounters are accurately placed in the larger picture of the conflicts in which they took place. These two series literally represent what seems to be the last attempt of the History Channel to tell true and accurate history. Dogfights, and Battle 360 represent accurate and unbiased American history, told with all the narrative tension of a good novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loads for good price May 21, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I got this primarily for Dogfights but there was a huge in-depth description of WWII in the Pacific in Battle 360 as well. The narration is clear, everything is realistic, well-described, and all-around excellent history. One of the best military documentaries period. Got this as a Christmas gift for my dad who is a pilot and enjoyed watching the series here and there with me when we had time when it first aired.

By Gage

I didn't expect this to be such a cool box set but it was. I like the set the DVD's that follow the USS Enterprise to the Pacific War at war were too. and remaining set up dog fight is also awesome. great set I highly recommend it to any that is interested in World War Two an aircraft.

These videos were purchased as a Christmas gift for my husband. He was pleasantly surprised and excited to receive his gift. They are a great value and provide hours of both entertainment and interesting information about history and the military. My husband and I both have enjoyed them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Value February 26, 2014
By N. Berg
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It's disappointing that shows like Dogfights, & Battle 360 fell away in favor of a whole mess of "reality tv." They remain one of the few TV series I can watch repeatedly w/out losing interest.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic if imperfect series January 11, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Great series let down (only) by the lack of research and quality control by the animators (The wheels on the SPAD facing the wrong way, the markings on various aircraft completely wrong, opposing aircraft not shown to scale.

The Middle Eastern Dogfights are easily the most gripping of the series. .

5.0 out of 5 stars MILITARY COMBAT June 15, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
OH MAN, WHAT CAN I SAY EXCEPT THIS IS UNBELIEVABLE. I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN A WW11 AIR FAN AND ESPECIALLY THE PACIFIC AIR WAR. THIS IS A GREAT TRIBUTE TO ALL THE BRAVE MEN WHO FOUGHT AND DIED IN THIS TERRIBLE BUT DESPERATE CONFLICT . THE GRAPHIC EFFECTS ARE UNREAL, I RECOMMEND THIS TO ANY ONE WHO IS INTERESTED IN THIS TIME IN HISTORY
