"Great as in Big"
"a milestone in television"
transferred to outstanding DVD"
The complete series on six discs plus a bonus
disc containing 'Voices From the Western Front' plus another First World
Although it already is some decades old, the
completeness and thoroughness of the series has never been matched since
its release. Although it shows its age and some of the contemporary
ideas of the time, it still has a freshness and down-to-earth approach
that is missing in basically all of its more recent rivals. Some of the
editing and comments are quite dated, but with the correct bias and
pre-knowledge, there are some truly remarkable images in the series
which are shown in no other series I have ever watched.
The strongpoint of this series is that it
does not linger with the more obvious theatres and battles, but
attempts (and succeeds) to cover the global aspects of the
conflict. It is both a general and detailed overview of this
awesome conflict and offers many remarkable and innovative (at
the time) views on the this tragedy of the 20th century. A must for all (full- and part-time)
amateur and professional historians.
