Absolute must see to never forget WW2.
Best documentary series of any kind, ever.
Amazing, educational series about WWII.
Despite this being now about 50 years old I consider this a must see if you've even the slightest interest in WWII history.Newer shows might give you new interpretations or opinions but the facts are the same. As is the material used. It's recorded history.But this show has something that no modern documentary can give you: eye witness testimony. And from people who were there. At the battle-line. Inside the political theatre. Which were close to the players as it was happening. From all major nations involved. And that is pure gold.
Deep detailed account on what happened historically during WW2. Produced while we still had a lot of people alive from the war and with their memories of it still intact. Huge and fascinating archive footage from the war that were presented for the first time in this series. Adding to the depth is one of film's biggest personalities giving his voice (Laurence Olivier) who narrated it. Only some newer "hidden secrets" from the war that has been revealed after 1973 is missing - and while gripping stuff it is impossible not to take long breaks between episodes due to it's heavy and sad subject matter as the brain need to process it all.
I feel like I lived through the WWII. An absolute must see for everyone.
