World War II - The War in Europe Collector's Edition (1983) R1 Retail DVD
Major American campaigns in the Pacific during World War II are ably chronicled in this set of documentaries produced by the History Channel. The focus of the films is primarily U.S. Army and Marine action, as forces using an island-hopping strategy across the Pacific made amphibious landings that were usually followed by vicious combat against Japanese defenders. Action footage shot by American combat cameramen provides the bulk of the visual material, and many of the clips dramatically demonstrate what a terrible price was paid to conquer the islands. The narration of each documentary offersmore… information about particular combat units, and strategy and tactics are explained with the use of maps. General Douglas MacArthur, as one might expect, receives a lot of attention, and Admiral William "Bull" Halsey has an entire documentary (which is actually an episode of the Biography series) devoted to him and his naval campaigns. One film focuses on jungle warfare in Burma and New Guinea, while another provides a quick-moving overview of how warplanes were deployed by both sides. MacArthur's triumphant return to the Philippines is featured in one documentary, and the American assault against fanatical resistance on Okinawa is the subject of another film. These films do not cover the entire Pacific War, but they are informative, visually compelling, and intelligently assembled. --Robert J. McNamara
