The sequences are original, properly repaired and presented. But some are mislabeled (I know of two incidents in the first disk alone... I have not viewed the other 10 yet). Some inserted sounds are terrible (aircraft engine sounds are turbines... the engines shown are piston driven propeller bombers). As an old aviator, that simply jarred me to the fraud of the editing.
Words, places and names of primary players are mis-pronounced. The narrator read his script... written by someone who has read a book or two, not someone really knowledgeable. The narrator clearly was not privy to the war or its players, and the editor did not catch his errors. It is not a simple error... it is one after another, The Narrator speaks English pretty well, but when he does not have a clue about a word, he simply runs over it as well as his multi-lingual skills allow.
There is good material here, if you want to search for it. If you are just studying the war and have no background, it is a good start. If you are knowledgeable, go see the "Color of War" or something like it.
