  • WWII In Color Series

    There is a great (new?) series, on the Military Chanel (USA), and now on DVD, called WWII in Color. They use this new technology to color in old black and white movies from WWII. I think it's great, it gives a completely new look at the battles, fights, plans, generals, and the blood. Have you guys seen it yet? If not, I completely suggest you do. It's around $40-50 on Amazon now, or free on TV.

    Yeah, I've been getting sucked into it as well. At first, I thought it was just a reshowing of The History Channel's spectacularly boring WWII in HD or that other WWII in color series they had, but it's not. It reminds me a lot of The World at War, just in color.

    Very good! I highly recommend it...and may buy it one day.

    PS: I think Amazon has a different show by the same name. I don't think this series is on DVD yet as even the Mil Channel's own store doesn't have it.

              Oh SH/T,LET ME EXPLAIN WHAT I WAS MEANING, Heidi is not a neo Nazi.
              The German culture was beaming,
              I was born in Germany when Germany was muliculral,so I miss all of what my parents and grand parents had.
              Full German culture,hardly no English langauge ect.
              Nothing to do with wanting to live in Hitler's Germany days and nothing to do with exspelling the Jewish,Jewish to me are like Brothers and Sisters.

              You're films reminded me on what my parents and grand parent spoke to me about,this is what I was reflecting in my post above.

              You're films give a great insight to what the world was like during wwII.

              I recomend anyone to view you're films,great footage.

                Real color film and the colorized versions are almost identical to me. Scenes of Hitler in his mountain retreat are real color films with the battle scenes most likely colorized. The people who shot the actual battle footage were in as much danger as some of the fighters. they had lots of guts. I rather see the series on tv than buy the set. Its still too expensuve for me. I just bought a dvd with 20 old war movies for $5 plus tax. Can't pass that deal off.

                  It's an excellent series so far, with a lot of previously unseen combat footage included.

                  WWII was truly a unique period in time.

                    Hi,
                    I'm new here and I just posted by mistake over in the WWII section and asked about this very series and whether it was available in the U.S. on dvd in Region 1 format yet.
                    Guess not, if it's not available on the Military site yet. My local Comcast is going to make me upgrade to the next level to get the Military Channel. Guess I'll wait for the dvd's to come out.
