This is a great documentary I must say and I've seen thousands. The 1st hand accounts are enthralling. I 1st watched this on the History Channel who uses their own narrator Michael Carrol who does a much better job than the DVD's Samuel West. I was disappointed when I bought it on DVD and it had the BBC narrator. It's so night and day the difference, and the dialogue is almost the same word for word. If you've seen this on DVD and liked it then try to locate the History Channel version under the Roger Mudd series History Alive. It's 10x better and it frankly makes watching the DVD version hard after seeing the History Channel version. The series is not at all a propaganda film but a collection of 1st hand accounts & interviews that told it how it was. While it is not in depth about the tactical aspect of the battles and doesn't have some of the battles that happened in it,I don't think that was the aim of the documentary in the first place. There are no falsifications I found in it, no made up facts. It's not jaded I found. If it wanted to paint the Soviets as evil or bad then it would have mentioned the Soviet attack on Finland,occupation of Baltic states and the invasion of Eastern Poland and the murder of Polish POW officers as well. It's some accounts of what happened when the worlds most criminal and deplorable dictators and their ideologies clashed on the battlefield.
