Trivia

The Battle of Greece did not in fact delay the invasion of the Soviet Union. The operation could not begin until June 1941 because of equipment shortages, a delay in building aircraft bases in eastern Europe, and because the rivers and canals were heavily flooded, making it impossible for armored units to move.

This is THE WWII documentary....
9 April 2006 | by See all my reviews

If you want just about everything you want to know about WWII from multiple perspectives, this DVD delivers, you WILL learn new things guaranteed, so much so that you won't need any other documentary's on the subject. Get this, watch it, learn from it. Good for school use as well. As a bonus, watch this with Tora tora tora, saving private ryan, patton, band of brothers, a bridge too far, the longest day and other WWII epics along with this to make your knowledge of WWII even more complete. Sir Laurence Oliver's voice adds to the overall atmosphere of each episode in this 26 part series. Seriously you won't find a better WWII documentary set on the subject. PERFECT 10!!!
