This is one of the best dvd series produced about WW II.
I was already familiar with this series, and have it as one of my most prized possessions. It really brings the war to reality in a very sensitive way. After watching it, I feel like I've come through the war myself.
I bought this for my grandson, so he can have a better grasp of American history than he'll ever get within our degenerating, public school curriculum.

This is an obsolutely magnificent photo-record of many of the most important days and actions in the second World War. For a war that cost so very many Allied Casualties must never be forgotten. Set can be of use to schoolchildren and teachers alike for a very long time.

Outstanding and different slant to the War.
We found this mini series to be excellent. It had a different spin on it, unlike a regular war movie, or even a documentary on the war, its strategys. It was about how people came together, how small town America felt, how we percieved what we thought we knew the war was about.
We learned more about the small details we never knew. Overall, we have re-watched it a second time.
Excellent, different perspective on the war from those who lived it.

Ken Burns does it again--The War
The story is very well told and is intiment, giving a real feel for the times and events. Watching the series becomes a grind after a while which reflects the experience of the second world war. The interviews were very candid, revealing much of the first hand ordeal they endured but sparing the grotesqueness of the frightful events. Watching this film, with its supurlative naration definitly has been a worthwhile experience and I highly recommend it to any who would better understand our history and the world today. Following Burns' triumph about the American civil war, the standard has be upheld in this work.
