The sub-title "Waking the Sleeping Giant" along with the cover art (Zero's flying over a battleship) leads you to expect a documentary focusing on Pearl Harbor but this is misleading. Only one of the three disks covers the December 7th sneak attack while the two remaining disks cover a hodge-podge of WWII documentaria. The first disk is a portion of Creation Films excellent documentary "Hell in the Pacific". Every thing Creation Films does is first rate and this is no exception but here's the caveat - This disk features only 3 segments of the larger 10 part work. The remaining two disks are a mixed collection of Wolpert documentaria. The Wolpert content shows it's age, produced in the early 60's, but is of high quality nonetheless.
None of this information is available in Amazon's product description so I was disappointed with the product upon inspection. But I gotta say, at this price point (under $7), It's not a bad purchase. And Pre-Estate Sales shipped it to me in a timely manner with good protective packaging.

This is a very worthwhile collect of documentaries of WWII. There is some capture video clips of Axis incorporated in the documentary. There are many incidents I was not aware of about WWII. There many scene that I had not seen before. I enjoyed this DVD and highly recommend it. This a 3 disc collection.

It was a good look at the war without having to sit through many hours of film. It touched mostly on the high lights of the war. What I liked most was the insight into the trials after the war. This is the only documentary that I have seen that goes into the trial. It's just too bad that we couldn't have learned more from this history and avoided some of the many problems that have come up since this war.

As a reference for the complicated relationships between the countries involved, the video is like reading a history book, but with video to support the extraordinary causal outcomes of radical, power hungry leaders...

I thought I had seen every tape/DVD on the bombing of Pearl Harbour and other battles of WW2 but David Wolper seemed to have collared all the best and unseen bits for his production.
Fantastic scenes not viewed before and just the speeches of Winston Churchill and Roosevelt were enough to make my hair stand on end.
Some scenes also from such greats as Billy Mitchell and Eddie Rickenbacker and an excellent chapter of WW1.
If you think you have seen everything then get this set because you haven't.
The name David L.Wolper always represented quality production many years ago.
It has been reprised through this set.
Disc 3 is a real bonus showing the lead up and events of WW1 and how the US became involved.Then the huge task of preparing for the D -Day Invasion of Normandy with real sequences.Ten Seconds the Shook the World was the development of the Atom Bomb and its release over Hiroshima-real scenes again.Trial at Nuremberg saw all the Nazi War Criminals getting their deserved sentences of hanging and imprisonment, and The General is the biography of General Douglas MacArthur, a great story for a great general.
If you do not want to see all this it is history for your children and presented in the impeccable Wolper manner.
It is so good to see the past histories of WW1 and WW2 again and money well spent.

Various docos, most of which I'd found elsewhere. You get what you pay for and you don't have to pay very much for this set.
