The World At War

It arrived at my house earlier in the week, and I have been enjoying it ever since. The BBC series from the early 70's...

This series really lit my fire as a WW2 history lover. It covered so much, military, political and social. Whenever I'd catch reruns on The Military Channel or PBS, it would evoke memories of catching it at night on PBS in the late 70's as a teenager. For years I have wanted to own the collection, but simply never got around to purchasing it. Well, that changed and I finally have purchased it...and have watched many episodes so far.

Sir Lawrence Olivier narrates, the theme music is spot on, and the interviews - my God - the interviews. Incredible. Real living history in those interviews.

I bought the 30th anniversary edition, sold through (but not by) Amazon. Do yourselves a favor, and go buy this amazing collection!
