In probing the anatomy of war, consider the mind and remember that those minds, which fail to learn the lessons of history, are condemned to relive them! GERMANY and JAPAN formed an unholy alliance and by attacking without warning started World War II. What made them unleash the horrors of World War II on an unsuspecting world? What made them the most destructive force of the 20th Century? Striding to the stirring drumbeat through the mysterious demonic glow of Nazi torchlight processions, ADOLF HILTER, the total madman, saw himself as the mythical "White Knight", who saves the world. Uncover Hitler's art of deception and the lurid secrets of merciless mass media manipulaton during his bloody reign of terror. In our never ending desperate search for guidance and leadership, mankind welcomes a savior and too late realizes that we have nurtured Satan. Without warning in a rampage of destruction and atrocities beyond comprehension, Japan attacked Russia and China, followed by the infamous attack on PEARL HARBOR, that launched the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA into WORLD WAR II. The Japanese warrior code of Bushido says: "Do not survive to suffer the dishonor of capture! Surrender makes you subhuman. You will be annihilated!" When the unforgiving forces of revenge closed in on them, in true Samurai tradition, the Japanese High Command committed collective suicide. Vile degradation of humanity demonstrated the utter insanity of the Japanese military. An added special feature of this DVD is a collector's gallery of rare Hitler photos.

I was disappointed in this DVD. I expected it to detail the events leading up to WW11, and explain the reasons behind the start of the conflict. Instead, after watching it, I was left none the wiser.
There are two main parts to this DVD - one on Germany and the other on Japan. A bonus feature is a series of photographs of Hitler.
The story on Germany starts off well, but then falls away. We see Germany after her defeat in WW1 and the chaos that reigned. We then see Hitler's rise to power and his tightening grip on it. The takeovers in the Rhineland and the Sudetenland are glossed over - as is the Munich agreement giving Europe "peace". The non aggression pact with Stalin is only mentioned when we see the German and Soviet troops meeting in Poland. I expected more detail on these events as they were central to the start of the conflict.
The chronological order of events is also misleading - we see France signing the armistice, then in the next scene we witness the British withdrawal at Dunkirk.
The story on Japan was woeful. It is entirely on the war in China & Manchuria. It is made up of color movies made well after the war with some original archive black & white footage. The movie footage seems to come from Japanese, Chinese and Russian sources as in different scenes we see the Japanese as heroes fighting for their Emperor, then as evil child killers, to incompetent soldiers thrown back by the mighty red army. The storyline finishes in late 1939 then mentions the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941 - what about what happened in the intervening years?
I would find it hard to recommend this to anyone.
