This has always been a favourite series but never enough time to watch it. Things look so bad in the first 2 years it looks like the end of civilisation as we know it. I am only half way through but have thoroughly enjoyed it so far.

This collection is so expensive, so to find it on Zavvi for so little was amazing. Also to get the remastered version was awesome.

I have seen this a couple of times now and still despair of mans inhumanity to man and the incompetence of people in charge of the destiny of hundreds of thousands of soldiers, airmen & navy personnel. This series should be shown in schools of all religion and colour as a warning that this is still happening in countries in the name of religion, race and territory. To the people who still deny the holocaust, watch this series and then decide. This is the definitive collection of films and documentaries for the second world war.

I have viewed the entire series here in the States and was very surprised by the quality of your offering. It seems like a brand new series. Your service and delivery processes should be commended. Maybe you should appear on Facebook and Twitter on a larger scale to call attention to your operation. Your service and price is truly first-rate!

I remember watching this series many years ago when shown on TV for the first time. This restored and digitised edition is superb and truely shows the horrors of war and what the young men and women went through to keep us free. An absolute must for anyone interested in WWII.

Having recently visited Berlin, I decided it was time to learn about the events that changed the face of Europe and try and understand the reasons behind the events of World War 2 and especially learn about the people who were involved in the horror and the heroics. The World At War: The Ultimate Restored Edition is by far the best historical collection I have seen. I would recommend this set if you have an interest in history.

The definitive version of this documentary series. Anyone interested in the Second World War should watch this, superior to any other version, and for sale on Zavvi for the most reasonable price around.

I always liked the World at War when initially shown on the TV, but as I worked away from home, and still do, I have never seen all the episodes. I am now enjoying a show which is brilliantly narrated and well produced as and when it suits me. The World At War: The Ultimate Restored Edition is money well spent.

This DVD version of The World at War has the tag line :- The Ultimate Restored Edition is the definitive version of one of the greatest documentary series ever...I can't comment any extra on that as it really does say it all. Absolutely top marks to the restoration team, Freemantle Media Enterprises. Some of the restored black and white footage looked as though it had been filmed yesterday. The sound is top quality too; nothing I can think detracts from it. Yes, it is about a war that finished nearly seventy years ago, and there have been hundreds of films, documentaries and bio's of the people involved, but I still learnt something I didn't know in every section. Even in my life-time, the perception of World War 2 has changed dramatically. In my youth, it was simply the war Britain won over the German's. Then it was the war we won with a little bit of help from the U.S.A. Later still, it seemed apparent that the war was really between Germany and Russia; the western front being a mere side-line. More recently, any mention of World War 2 has had to include The Holocaust as though that was what it was all about really. What this box set does is bring home the big picture to World War 2, giving validity to all these views but showing that there was a lot more going on at the same time. All-in-all it's easy to watch, but in an absorbing way. I would recommend it to both young and old.

The World at War: The Ultimate Restored Edition is an amazing collection of archive material. This restored edition is a work of art, the time and hard work taken to deliver this item in this format is a great achievement. Everyone with the slightest interest in this period of history should view this item. This box set is like having picture reference books. This is just not a DVD box set, it is part of our history, which we should never forget.
