The World at War, a birthday gift from my wife. A state-of-the-art documentary not to be underestimated. The advantage speaks for itself when it was made in 1973/74, obvious to say a lot of people were still alive that had experienced the war itself being interviewed by the producers of this brilliant series which comes all in one package. I had never believed to see Albert Speer being interviewed on this, a remarkable man. Hitler's secretary had been interviewed as well, she had been courageous to agree to this interview which was extensive. One could not possibly imagine what this is all about without seeing it first, the producers were expert in their field. that is for sure. And of course one would finally ask the question; is there anything about the 'death camps in it?' The producers made this a specialty, they thought it was a must to include this, after all, the persecution of the Jews was what Nazi ideology is all about. It explains a lot about what the persecution was all about making it easier to understand. Of course there are many other documentary's made since this one was produced, however, this one is worth while getting and will not disappoint.
Loads of extras and fully restored.
I bought The World At War: The Ultimate Restored Edition for my teenage son. I thought it might be a little outdated for him but he loves it, and the hours and hours of film. He stayed up half the night and still has hours to go.
