Dogfights Season Two was every bit as exciting, thoughtful and well produced as Season One. Filled with many great interviews with actual participants in much of the action being documented, coupled with the "in the cockpit" feel of the show, there is no other documentary on the subject of dogfighting quite like it. Why the History Channel would cancel the best, most exciting and informative show they've ever produced at the peak of its popularity is still a mystery. Don't miss out on a chance to own this show on DVD while it is in print.

This DVD set contains all seventeen episodes from Season Two. Here's a list of episode titles:
Kamikaze
Jet vs. Jet
Thunderbolt
Gun Kills of Vietnam
Desert Aces
The First Dogfighters
Luftwaffe's Deadliest Mission
No Room for Error
Night Fighters
The Bloodiest Day
P-51 Mustang
Dogfights of Desert Storm
Tuskegee Airmen
MiG Killers of the Midway
Supersonic
Death of the Luftwaffe
Secret Weapons

'Dogfights, season 2' is even better than the first season. Season 2 has 5 CD's instead of 4 that season 1 had, plus one extra battle per CD. This season has WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm and the Israeli Sx Day War.
I love both seasons. I watch them over and over again. If you want to watch air battles about famous aces like Robert S. Johnson, Robin Olds, Lee A. Archer and more. With air battles about the P-51, P-47, F-4, F-86, F-15, Mirage and more.
If you want to read about aces and air battles, then buy Osprey's 'Aircraft of the aces' books. If you want some action yourself, then buy 'IL-2 Sturmovik' and/or 'IL-2 F.B., A.E.P.', and if you want to watch air battles, then this is the documentry!
I'll always buy History Channel's 'Dogfights' series.

One of the best shows I have ever seen. The computer graphics depicting the dogfight put you right there. Plus they interview the pilots to give you inside information on what they were thinking and seeing. Very good series. Start with the "No Room For Error" episode. Highly recommended.

I have always been fascinated with the fighter pilots of The First World War. So, when I saw "The First Dogfighters" available, I purchased it without hesitation.

This is not a live action recreation, but a computer-generated one. Yet, I felt my stomach lurch at the sudden, sharp turns these WW1 planes achieved, unlike anything you would see today. A large portion of pilots shotdown in combat died in their planes' crashes and this brought home to me the real risk these brave men, on both sides, accepted when they began their careers as fighter pilots in the Great War.

Flying by the seat of your pants in an open cockpit, while fighting an enemy whose face you could often see, is a type of aerial combat we are unlikely to see again. Even in the heat of battle and these men fighting each other to the death, there were incidents of real chivalry and respect between enemies. After he was shotdown behind enemy lines, even the "Red Baron", Manfred Albrecht Freiherr von Richthofen, was given a full British military funeral by the Australian Flying Corps.

While we may more readily remember the fighter pilots of the Second World War and our own pilots of today, the men who took to the air in the First World War were truely the Knights of the Sky and we may never see their kind again.

Best aviation show ever, and I've probably seen them all. Besides the great storytelling, the visuals are stunning. If you enjoy aviation history, this is the show for you. Too bad we're only getting two seasons of it out of the History Channel, as it is the best thing they've ever featured, IMHO.

I love this show!. This is the best thing out there. If you like aviation or military history, this is the show for you. The really cool part, over and above the awesome dogfight action, is the comments from the actual men who where there. This would make a great gift.

The computer animation is beautiful and shows details of the fights. It makes the stories very exciting and suspenseful. It also puts viewers in the pilots' seats.

This set contains 5 discs. Disc 1 contains the following episodes:
- Kamikaze. Before this, I did not know the Japanese had suicide rocket plane.

- Jet vs Jet: On May 20, 1951, in the sky over North Korea, for the first time of air combat history, American jets fought against Communist jets.

- Thunderbolt: American workhorse planes in WWII.

- Gunkills of Vietnam: Skyraiders vs Mig 17 and F4 Phantoms vs Mig 21, in Vietnam.

In short, this is One of the BEST that MY MONEY CAN GET in terms of air combat or history DVDs. If you love air combat or history, you don't want to miss this one. It's much more interesting than just reading history books.

This is the best show ever on dogfighting. most of us agree with that. The cgi effects are stunning and the stories are all true. The only complaint could be that they don't feature enough "enemy' aces! But there's some of them and I can't imagine why this show is no longer being made. But there you have it. And if any show needed to be on blu ray it was this one. The dvd's look great though and that's why this series is worth collecting. The stories of pilots battling to survive and to overcome the odds even are well done and poignant even. Military history fans should jump on this one.
