4.0 out of 5 stars Informative but dark, December 23, 2013
By 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Nazi Megaweapons (DVD)
Overall it was a very informative series about several programs the Nazi regime pursued to improve their chances of winning World War 2. It also was very dark and disturbing on how they used prisoners to achieve those goals. Two discs with three episodes per disc. The Atlantic Wall, the construction of coastal defences against Allied invasion. U-Boat Base, how Nazi submarine pens were constructed to withstand Allied bombing raids. V2 Rocket, the development and deployment of the V2 rocket program. Super Tanks, the biggest tank on the battlefield is not always the most effective tank on the battlefield. Jet Fighter Me262, the first jet fighter aircraft, came into the war too late to put the Allies back on the defensive. Fortress Berlin, Berlin made into the place where Hitler made his last stand .

5.0 out of 5 stars Great source of info regarding German engineering of WWII, March 24, 2014

This review is from: Nazi Megaweapons (DVD)
I found this DVD to be very informative regarding learning about German submarine bases in France, German missile production, and the German "wall" of fortifications in Europe during WWII. I believe this DVD was very well done, and gained quite a bit of information that I did not know about all three of these topics. I hope PBS will do further documentary type DVD's in the future regarding German weaponry in WWII, especially regarding the so called German "wonder weapons" (secret weapons) of WWII. Thanks for a great DVD, very well done!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great PBS series, May 29, 2014

This review is from: Nazi Megaweapons (DVD)
As we approach the 70th anniversary of D Day, I wanted to convey to my grandchildren the magnitude of of the invasion and the great adversity that the allies had to overcome on the landing beaches. The first episode, The Atlantic Wall, explained this extremely well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good, not great, June 23, 2014

This review is from: Nazi Megaweapons (DVD)
These documentary pieces on Nazi Mega Weapons are very well done. But what's missing is the contrast to the counter-measures taken by the Alllies to defeat them and the Germans, overall. Not even mentioned is the stupendous American and British effort in the Manhattan Project which produced the greatest scientific and engineering achievement in history. This is especially noteworthy when one or more of the Nazi Mega Weapons, like the Atlantic Wall, is described as just falling short of what it needed to be for lack of time. For goodness sake! If the Nazis had prolonged the war 3 more months, Little Boy and, probably, Fat Man would have landed on Berlin and, possibly, the U-boat pens at Lorient, northern France. OK, some of the flak towers and pens may have survived, in part, but the German citizens, including Hitler and his henchmen, would all have been fried or received fatal doses of radioactive fallout. Some may have walked around for a while, dazed and stupefied. They may even have glowed in the dark. But not for long. The Germans, not the Irish or anyone else, are the luckiest race of all. Three more months and they all might have perished.
