Editorial Reviews

WWII was the largest and most destructive war ever waged, engulfing the far reaches of the globe. The defining event of the 20th Century, this was lasted more than five years, spanning three continents and the seven seas, and threatening the future of civilization itself. The legacy of that conflict remains strong today, having shaped and changed our world in a thousand ways. This collection of 8 DVDs, including over 24 hours of archival footage, takes you through the war years, from the Battle of Britain in Europe to the atmoic blasts at Hiroshima and Nagasaki which ended the war in the Pacific. Each theater of operation and major turning point is examined in detail, the great battles and the political struggles, the sacrifies and triumphs of millions of men and women, caught up in the greatest war mankind has ever known.

I watched and loved this show when I was a kid (I know I am old!), and loved it when it came out on video tape back in the 80's. When I saw it had been released on DVD I was elated because my video tapes had worn out. I was also happy to see how cheap it was compared to buying the old VHS tapes. I would highly recommend this series to both the serious WWII nut like me, or to someone who wants an easy to understand narrative of the war. It is unique in that it gives the human perspective to events, and is not just a video with impersonal facts and film clippings. It is a great companion piece to The World at War (which is also available on DVD). I would highly recommend buying this DVD set.

As a WWII buff, this is a wonderful recording of history. Many scenes I have never seen before. A must if you are a WWII history fan.

Answer: No one. He invented the job of professional war correspondent. I have seen hundreds of WWII videos but this one revealed aspects of WWII not elucidated in most others. Told in a matter-of-fact tone, Mr. Cronkite is not just a narrator but a witness to what was reported. More than anyone else, he was able to combine objective recitation of facts with an empathetic viewpoint, yielding a fine balance between the two. For me, this was WWII on a broad but more personal level than most documentaries.

I have been looking for this series on DVD for some time. I have a VHS copy of the series, but it was on it's last legs due to age and repeated viewings. Walter Cronkite was one of my favorite correspondents and this series is one the best about WWII by one who was there.

I was excited to get this for my dad for his birthday, as my grandfather passed down his VHS copies to me in college. I couldn't really tell from the reviews or searches on the web if this was the same VHS series, but took a chance anyway. I was severely disappointed when I received this. While it contains all the original series, and some new segments, the order of the segments followed no logical order. The first segment on disk one was about the Battle of the Bulge and the second segment about the Pacific Air Campaign. It wasn't until Disk 6 that The Seeds of War arrived. One of the great things I loved about the original was that I could follow along from the rise of Hitler to the end of the War and it followed a logical chronological order. I returned this immediately and have ordered the European & Pacific Walter Cronkite discs after finding pictures of the back that shows the original order of segments. I give this three stars as it still contains all the great footage (although I think the box said it was in color and I'm a B & W fan) but not sure why they would mix up the segments.

This is the DVD version of the video cassette series of the mid 1980's titled The CBS Video Library of World War II. I used this series in the history classes I was teaching at the time. My personal favorite takes place on Disk 4 "The Pacific Campaign" highlighting the roll out of the Super-fortress....the B-29...... the plane that would end World War II, Disk 6- The Eastern Front / The German High Command, Disk 5 - Air War Over Europe / Allied Airmen POW's, Disk 8 - Home front and Victory. What is really great about this extensive series is that we see the war from all angles. Many aspects of the war took place apart from the Americans. For example...the Siege of Leningrad by the Germans, the Scandinavian and Soviet Fronts, and War within Wars in Europe. Walter Cronkite's on target narration and stunning films of all aspects of the second world war will leave you mesmerized and teach all there is to know about the Greatest Generation. A must have and a must see.

In #5 dvd I was almost brought to tears...there showed STINKY, my dads plane that he was in for 32 missions as a gunner. It showed so briefly though. I wish we would have been mature enough to honor him when he was alive, but we were just going on with our lives and now we realize what our too busy lifetimes ignored all the while.

I remember 55 + years ago when it first appeared on TV. The program was The 20th Century. It was one of my favorite shows on the air. It still holds!t
