Editorial Reviews

It was a war and a series of military campaigns like no other. HISTORY puts viewers in the middle of the action with two revealing programs that use cutting-edge computer graphic animation and the latest technology to bring a 360-degree view of the Second World War. In Battle 360°, follow the only carrier to be front and center in every major sea conflict in the Pacific. The USS Enterprise and its men fought saw some of the fiercest multi-front battles ever witnessed in modern combat as they fought off the enemy from the air, the sea, and underwater. Then, travel with Gen. George S. Patton, Jr. as he leads his heroic soldiers in North Africa, in the invasion of Sicily, and in the charge across Europe to defeat Hitlers Third Reich. Patton 360° weaves a mix of CGI battle scenes, interviews with historians and men who fought under Patton, and commentary by modern-day military experts, offering a dramatic analysis of the brilliant strategy and leadership Patton exemplified as he beat back the Nazi tidal wave in WWII.

BATTLE 360: For nearly a decade, the legendary World War II aircraft carrier USS Enterprise held a pivotal place on the turbulent seas of war, engaging in some of the fiercest multi-front battles ever witnessed in modern combat. The only carrier to be front and center in every major sea conflict in the Pacific, the Enterprise and her crews battles were marked by intense firepower, instinct, and a 360°-coordination between surface ships, the aircraft above, and the submarines below. In each episode using incredible CGI visualizations, BATTLE 360° follows the Enterprise and its men through another conflict of WWII as they fight off the enemy from the air, sea, and underwater. BATTLE 360°: THE COMPLETE SEASON ONE includes all 10 original episodes on 3 discs:
DISC 1: Call to Duty / Vengeance at Midway / Jaws of the Enemy / Bloody Santa Cruz
DISC 2: Enterprise vs. Japan / The Grey Ghost / Hammer of Hell
DISC 3: D-Day in the Pacific / Battle of Leyte Gulf / The Empire s Last Stand / Bonus
BONUS FEATURES: Additional Footage


PATTON 360 uses cutting-edge computer graphic animation and the latest technology to bring viewers a 360-degree view of World War II. Patton, a complicated, colorful, and ferociously determined officer known as Old Blood and Guts, springs to life with the aid of archival footage, personal diary quotes, and commentary from historians and veterans. With insight into the forces he commanded and battles he led, youll be there for all the drama, from lightning-fast armored assaults to the Battle of the Bulge and the final battles inside Germany after crossing the Rhine.

DISC 1: Blood & Guts / Rommels Last Stand / Baptism of Blood / Rogue General / American Blitzkrieg
DISC 2: Leading the Charge / On Hitlers Doorstep / Siege Warfare / Battle of the Bulge / Crushing the Third Reich

4.0 out of 5 stars SURPRISED January 23, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I enjoy History's Channel 360 dvd's. I own three of them. When I ordered World War II 360 I thought it was about the complete war. Alas, I did not check into it further. It is about the aircraft carrier Enterprise and General Patton. It is actually quite good and I would have given it 5 stars, but I already own Enterprise 360 and General Patton. My fault for not reading all the information on what it's about. But if your a history buff and like WWII,and do not own the others, this is excellent dvd to own.

Overall these are well done and enjoyable. My teenage grandson enjoys them. Purists on this site have found fault, saying there are errors. They should state what those are, because the rest of us have not spent every waking hour studying the minutiae of WWII.

5 Blu-ray Discs, being released October 26, 2010

For all you history buffs, "World War II 360" is over 17 hours of battle action in the Pacific. It has two complete series from the History Channel. The first called Battle 360 covers the war career of the USS Enterprise (Star Trek fans, feel free to drool), which was the only carrier to be front and center in EVERY battle in the Pacific during the war. The amazing story is told through historians, Top Gun graduates (once more, feel free to drool, my husband loves Top Gun), and sailors who were actually THERE.

The USS Enterprise was a giant carrier that was equipped with tons of high-artillery machine guns, a large crew, and a deck carrying several small aircraft ready to take to the air for scouting or battle. Not only are the individual battles exciting, but there are a few funny stories put in too like of a drunk guy relieving himself in a stairwell. The first battle was discovering America had been pulled into the war in the first place with the attack on Pearl Harbor by the Japanese. In one terrifying moment, a Japanese pilot whose aircraft was damaged attempted to crash it right into the USS Enterprise, but one American's quick thinking saved the carrier. He jumped into one of the American aircraft and fired away at the Japanese aircraft which through off its trajectory and it scraped the deck and the aircraft of the American but coasted off to crash in the water. The Captain had been watching at the time and requested the hero immediately come see him in his office where he gave the officer two promotions for his bravery.

Almost the entire sequence of battles is done in a CGI format that makes it look like a really cool video game, but it is fascinating to watch, especially in Blu-ray.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow March 25, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this set of DVD's and I'm hoping that the History Channel will continue this series. In general the shows are easy to follow and very informative. The computer graphics are neat because they fill in all the areas that the old film footage can't. The 360 element is great as well, it gives you a birds eye view of the battlefields as well as some insight into the strategy used.
I especially liked the Patton series because it didn't present Patton as the worlds best general. It showed his strengths and weaknesses as well as what his men thought about him. The show lets you draw your own conclusions by offering both sides. It was great being able to listen to the old veterans tell their tales as well. What an incredible and humble group of people.

5.0 out of 5 stars World War II 360 April 22, 2012
By Mr D
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I am a WWII Buff. I tell you this is "THE BEST WWII" film made to date. In Europe, they follow General Patton from bigging to end. The story detail and completeness is just great with actual footage throughout. Computer graphics are added in between the actual footage to show you strategy, weapon configurations, and battle confrontation details that are not in the actual footage. Same for the war in the Pacific. In the Pacific they follow the Big-E through-out the war, the carrier Enterprise. The carrier Enterprise was the only naval ship that was in every major battle and survived. I purchased this film on Amazon for the lowest price and speed delivery. I and my wife have watched this film over 7 times in the past 4 months since I purchased it. You will never get tired of this film. It is just mind boggling the massiveness of WWII, failures and successes, and dumb US government politics that made the war twice as long as necessary. It is that well made!

This is a review of the Blu-ray set which contains BATTLE 360 (the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise) and PATTON 360 (Gen. George S. Patton). This is one of the best and most informative World War II documentary sets I've seen.
BATTLE 360 (3 discs, 10 episodes) covers the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise, the most-decorated Navy warship of World War II, from Pearl Harbor to its unfortunate post-war scrapping. It includes actual, stock and CGI video footage with the CGI being relatively good (one obvious mistake in the documentary's use of stock footage is showing weapons being loaded on the Enterprise's bombers---some of the weapons shown are AIM-9 Sidewinder air-to-air missiles which were used in large numbers in the Vietnam War 20 years after the Enterprise saw combat in World War II). An added bonus are many interviews with former crew members of the Enterprise and its escort ships. Very informative commentary is provided by military historians including Jonathan Parshall and Martin Morgan. Highlights include the Battle of Midway, the Solomon Islands, the raid on Truk and the Battle of Leyte Gulf (the largest naval battle in history). When BATTLE 360 was shown on the History Channel, one of the sponsors was Enterprise-Rent-A-Car, whose founder, Jack Taylor, was a pilot on the Enterprise in World War II.
PATTON 360 (2 discs, 10 episodes) follows the World War II story of Gen. George S. Patton, arguably the best and most controversial Allied general of the war. If you're a fan of the movie PATTON starring George C. Scott, PATTON 360 gives you a more detailed account of Patton which will give you a much better understanding of what transpires in the movie PATTON.

5.0 out of 5 stars A well-done concept to explore the pivotal event of the 20th century.
There is a lot of CGI, however the archival footage and the interviews balance the learning experience. A good way to guide you to key events and people in WWII.
