Editorial Reviews

MILITARY SECRETS AND SCANDALS OF THE 20TH CENTURY takes you behind enemy (and ally) lines, reserving you a seat at the conspiratorial bargaining table. From Hitler’s bunker to the Desert Storm round table, this insightful, impeccably researched 10-part series will deepen your understanding of top secret debates and suppressed debacles that never made the headlines—until now! Features: SECRET WEAPONS OF WWII: A look at some of the most secret weapons used by the Allies and Axis forces in World War II. Included are some weapons that never made it into action, but were built and tested. THE ATOM STRIKE: How the Atomic Bomb was built and tested. Footage of scientists, engineers and military personnel working together to create the ultimate weapon. THE SECRET LIFE OF ADOLF HITLER: Little known and previously secret footage about the life of one of history's most notorious people, Adolf Hitler. Includes scenes with some of World War II's most notorious people. IN THE SHADOW OF HISTORY: THE OSI STORY: Precursor to the CIA, this is the story of the first organization to gather intelligence from outside the United States. A look inside the agency that started spying for the United States. SPIES: THE DIRTY GAME OF ESPIONAGE: Spying for your country is not always a clean and tidy job. Sometimes you have to get a little "dirty" to find out the secrets of your enemy... and maybe your friends. THE SECRET UNDERWORLD: Things are not always as they seem on the surface. Spies and secret agents look to the secret underworld in search of the ultimate truth. THE WAR THAT CHANGED WARS: SECRETS: An in-depth look at World War II secret information and how it changed the course of war forever. How war is waged was changed forever as a result of secrets from World War II. COMMUNIST BLUEPRINT FOR CONQUEST: As Communism grew in the world, it became apparent that there was a plan to conquer the rest of the world. Here is that "Blueprint." MEN WITH GREEN FACES: From the era of the United States involvement in Vietnam, this is the story of a "secret army" that worked behind the scenes. Watch the story of how the U.S. military used a secret force to wage war. DESERT STORM: WHAT YOU DIDN'T KNOW: On the surface Desert Storm appeared to be one of the most lop-sided victories in history. But things happened during this war that were unplanned and unforeseen. Here is "What You Didn't Know."

This interesting Collection of 10 documentaries was released by Madacy in 2011. This set contains 10 programs about various subjects: World War II, the Atomic Bomb, Hitler, Spies, Secret Agents, the Vietnam War, Special Forces, the US Military and so on. In my opinion this is an interesting DVD set simply because I enjoy watching all kind of Historical documentaries and because I like to learn more about Wars, weapons and the Military. The best part of this DVD Set is how it presents topics that you don't usually see on DVD. There's not a lot of DVD available where you can find information about secret armies, spies, military secrets or Secret services. So overall I think this DVD set is good. However not everyone will enjoy watching these documentaries. Some of them are Black and White movies, the type where the narration is over the top and the information is not reliable ( "The secret life of Adolf Hitler" is one of them, very difficult to watch ). Others, like "Men with Green Faces", are from the 70's and not of great quality. A lot of these documentaries are available on Youtube, so I highly recommend to you to watch some of them on Youtube before buying the set, that way you'll know what to expect. This collection is interesting, the subject of most documentaries is fascinating and well presented, but this set is not for everybody.

Again: Some of these documentaries are old, vintage Black and White movies, and the most recent of these programs were produced at the beginning of the 1990's. So this set is not for everybody, and I recommend you to watch some of these documentaries on Youtube before buying the set. I think Madacy did a good job with this set, but it could have been a lot better.

I haven't watched these yet, but they were recommended by a family member, as being very interesting. If you only have a BluRay player, then don't buy these because they won't work. They only work on a regular DVD player. This may be because they were made in Mexico.

I never knew of what this series reveals. This is for the history student of the 20th century.
My eyes were opened about things I didn't know in the 20th Century.
