WWII: The Essential Collection [22 Discs] [DVD]

This box set brings into a single package several of the most influential and historically vital World War II-themed documentaries ever created. Included are: The World at War (1971), a 22-hour miniseries narrated by Sir Laurence Olivier that approaches the war from virtually every angle, including politics, skirmishes, occupations and crimes against humanity; Victory at Sea (1952), a miniseries hosted by Peter Graves that hones in on the naval fronts of World War II, with subtopics including Okinawa, Iwo Jima, and German u-boat attacks; and The Century of Warfare (1994), a sweeping chronicle of virtually every national armed conflict during the 20th Century, that puts the Second World War into a historical framework.
