It is like no one knew or vetted the film for basic history, military equipment, or the sequence of the war at this company. So as history it is fraught with errors. As entertainment, the footage is very nice and it's fun to find all the footage and textural mistakes.
Like above, rarely seen footage makes this a 3 1/2-star event. The manifold errors drove me to distraction - subtract 2 stars.
The historical film available on this DVD is worth the price, and more. Again, I agree with Mr. Turner's review... turn off the audio, and use the closed captions.
For WWII history buffs, this DVD is worth it. I've never seen some of the archival film, and I've been viewing WWII battle films for over 40 years. It's obvious that the narrator is young, and never heard of some of the locations, or war equipment used, before. He's simply reading a poorly written script.
I give it 3 stars based upon the historical information provided, but deducted the 2 stars due to the poor narration.
