one of my Teachers from High School is a WW2 military items / gun collector / dealer. i was talking to him at a show the other day and he suggested i check out a DVD set called "The Unknown War" which i think has mostly German / Russian war footage. you can find some, but not all of the footage online to check out. looks pretty action packed.

i come to ARFcom to find out if it is worth $40 bucks before i order it, or if i should spend that money on "The World at War"

thank you.

( p.s. the reason i am reluctant to buy it is because i have a stack of WW2 documentaries that SUCK )

if you havent bought it yet...

It looks good from the web site (what wont). I run with a group of pentagon ticket punchers who did masters/phd on the east front. In fact one of them did his thesis on germany's tank recover ytactics on the eastern front and he is one of the guys planning to evac all the gear out of iraq I havent seen it or heard of it. These guys should have. I can ask them about it.

I know one thing. IMHO World At War is awesome



EDIT

yah no one I know has seen it-it looks interesting

I've seen the Unkown War series on PBS in the past. If this is the same series (it should be) then it is well worth the purchase.


And yes, it is the Soviet's Great Patriotic War against the Germans. I don't remember an overabundance of Soviet propaganda though. Mostly just the war from the Soviet perspective.

sorry, havent finished "World at War" yet. it is BADDASS though.

i was going to wait til i finished that before ordering the "unknown war" since world at war is something like 26 hours long !
