Just received my 4-DVD order, 16 Chapters covering 1933-1945, European and Pacific Theaters. I can't wait until the weekend to start my trek through these sessions. :jump:

I ordered from a TV Ad for $49. I'll tell you how it all goes.

Didn't that series run on PBS in the 70s? If so, my memories of it are very good. It was an excellent series with a great sound track.

I'm confused ...
Shouldn't the title of this thread been ... World at War? Especially since you're talking about a 4 DVD set. :d

Yes, and I did not notice it until you mentioned it. Sorry for the confusion, and I can not edit the title. :banghead:

I've emailed Ickie with my concerns about not being able to edit posts after someone else posts behind us.
I hope to get a positive resolution on this ...

Its alright though Milton, I knew what you was talking about. :d

I picked this up at christmas last year - the one narrated by Laurence Olivier - 26 episodes in all with 6 episodes added 3 years after the first viewing in 1973...

It's a great collection, sure you will enjoy..
They have been showing the series here in the UK over the last year or so on one of the History channels, catching a few episodes first prompted me to look for the box set..

The Lost Color Archives is also very good, but needed more PTO shots.
