Editorial Reviews

Once there was a war.. A ware like none other.. A war cloaked in darkness, lit only by the flash of flares and searchlights, the explosions of bombs and the blaze of burning planes So begins this series of the deadly war fought in the dark skies over Europe in World War II. For the first time in history of human conflict, a war was fought by men and machines in the air at night. Veterens from both sides recount the commonplace bravery and horror that they faced on a daily basis. The complex tactics that evolved and the race of competing technologies are related by graphic images and animation. The war had become not only battle between men but also a struggle of science and technology.

Format: DVD
I recommend this DVD for anyone who is interested in learning about the night bombing campaign over Europe. This video gives perspectives from both the Canadian's who fought alongside the RAF and the German's who first had their own night bombing campaign; then had to try and stop the British/Canadian Bombing efforts.

Strong Points:

#1 Shows the technological advances by the Allies and Axis in the European night airwar.

#2 Shows museum examples of the tools used in this war such as Avro Lancaster, Ju-88, 88MM FLAK, Radars, searchlights etc.

#3 Excellent interviews with Canadian Airmen, German Airmen and Axis & Allied aircraft ground controllers. The veterans are brutally honest about the failures and successes of both sides and individuals during the war.

#4 Strong narration.

#5 The video covers the training of Allied aircrews in Canada during with war.

Weak Points:

#1 There are a few spots in the videos where information is repeated. When originally shown this information may have been used as a refresher when watching the next episode? When watched in sequence some redundant information was unneeded.

#2 There is a flight sequence with a former German pilot in a vintage Douglas A-26 Invader (representing a Ju-88 nightfighter) approaching a airworthy Avro Lancaster. I felt the information had already been covered very well and the flight sequence added little to the video. (My opinion only) Other people watching this sequence may find this section informative.

I rated this video a four out of five. I would have rated it a five if the repeated items were removed.

The strong points greatly outnumber the few weak points so I do highly recommend these videos.

The 3 DVD set is very well done. Good sequences, and the video of surviving WWII aircraft will be good for modelers. Very good documentary on the roles Radar played in the night bombing war over Germany.
