To answer another reviewer's question: Why would you buy this set when you can get the individual films cheaper? You can't buy the individual films cheaper.
The version of "Patton" in this set is the 2-disc Special Edition, which is out of print except for in this set, and selling for more than the price of this entire set on auction sites.
So save some money, get the 2-disc version of Patton, and get three other great WWII films for free (essentially).

The Longest Day is one of the best war movies ever made. And Tora 3 is a much better depiction of the attack on Pearl Harbor than that stupid Ben Affleck movie.

The Thin Red Line can be a tough one to accept. I had to watch it a few times before I liked it.

FIRST THOUGHTS: 4 EXCELLENT WAR FILMS ON DVD THEMATICALLY COMBINED INTO 1 SET

This set came to me as a gift from one of my sons about 4 years ago. He found it at Sam's Club and he paid about 30 dollars. Each one of the films included are films I really wanted so the set has been a 'reel' treat for me.

IN A NUTSHELL: SAVE $17. ON THIS SET VERSUS PURCHASING INDIVIDUAL TITLES FROM AMAZON

Within a nice outer slipcase you get 4 classic DVDs in their normal DVD packaging and wrappers. These are all releases that you can purchase seperately, but it is a little less costly to get the set. 'Patton' is a 2-DISK set that sells for $14.98 from Amazon, 'Tora Tora Tora' is $12.98, 'The Longest Day' is an edition no longer available directly from Amazon, but several Amazon sellers are offering it New from $15.98, and 'The Thin Red Line' is $9.19 directly from Amazon. It comes to over $53. plus shipping [depending on whether you get all the titles from Amazon or from vendors]. If you buy this set the shipping is free [over $25.] In essence, one can save $17. [as of today] buying this set rather than buying the individual titles, which is significant as these are not promotional DVDs and do in fact have all the 'special features' available on the individual titles.

***** THE TITLES *****

* 'THE LONGEST DAY'

* 'PATTON'

* 'THE THIN RED LINE'

* 'TORA TORA TORA'

The three older movies in this set are undeniably among the better "traditional" movies about World War II. "The Thin Red Line" may not belong in the same set (given its recent origin and approach to war) but it, too, is a movie with merit. My only question about this set is why would you buy them together when they are cheaper to buy if you purchase them separately? Is that slipcase worth the extra bucks? You decide.

Terrence Malick is an interesting director. I found THE THIN RED LINE to be a deep film, very ethereal in nature and liberating as it is disturbing. Director Terrence Malick focuses on the conflict at Guadalcanal from ground up and showing empathy and apathy along the way. Nick Nolte's performance as an over the hill Lieutenant Colonel trying to impress a very shallow and aloof Brigadier Geneneral (John Travolta) is moving. THE THIN RED LINE is a devastating film. The philosophical and psychological nature and the morality of war within that context seems to be present in some form in Terrence Malick's film. I see Nick Nolte as Colonel Tall as the most tragic figure in this film. In some respects he appears to be sacrificing men for the advancement of his own career, but he is sacrificing his own soul in the process trying to impress the high command of a military by delivering the objective. Nolte fails to see that he has been passed over for many years now and if he doesn't get the job done then someone else will. I found the contrast of the characters played by Elias Koteas and John Cusack to be very enlightening as to how to get the job done and take the objective.

Darryl F. Zanuck's THE LONGEST DAY may well be the definitive film of D-Day June 6, 1944. THE LONGEST DAY is probably one of the most ambitious WWII films ever produced. It's all encompassing scope of the invasion and the combatants and both the individual and collective personal stories of some of the combatants is extraordinary and contributes to the overall depiction and sense of calamity and coordination of the Allies on D-Day June 6, 1944. THE LONGEST DAY is based on the book The Longest Day by Cornelius Ryan and in the book the focus is on the people, the combatants as well as civilians.

It is up to the viewer to decide what is fact and what is fiction or what is utter and complete fantasy. But in my Opinion, The Longest Day, Patton and Tora Tora Tora are renowned war movies, 'The Thin Red Line' is not.
Maintaining a very slow pace throughout its three and half hours lenght, in the 'Thin Red Line' more Japanese soldiers are shown surrendering in the few hours of combat depicted than actually did the first three years of the Pacific war! (If you do not believe me, look up Tarawa, New Guinea, Marshall Islands, and Iwo Jima for example.) And of course the Americans are shown almost to last as the inhuman beasts and the Japanese as noble Samurai.
Following in the tradition of the racist epic 'Birth to a Nation', movies like the Thin Red Line and Pearl Harbor are rewriting ouf history. For example, in Pearl Harbor the Japanese are depicted as being justified in attacking, when actually the United States stopped selling the Japanese oil because they were allies with Hitler, making war on China, and had just invaded French Indochina.
