World War 2 Documentary

World War 2 the Complete History :The stumble to War 1/6

This is a preview for a series on WWII, and that deserves more credit than that pitiful air time it had on PBS 10 years ago. Unlike other series on WWII such as the famous World at War series, it offers no interview, no war stories. It look at the big picture of the war from the view of macro history, and its impacts on us. I’ll upload the first episode on the interwar years, and the final episode on consequences of the war to get you started. The war itself however, you’ll have to discover yourself. This series is hard to find now, but is its still possible. If you own the copyright to this content, just PM me and I’ll take it down. Just please make it more available.

There’s good coverage in this one, but it’s a horrible documentary. There’s no interviews – it’s just the rantings of a biased ex-U.S.-military officer. I should note that I often agree with the man, but it’s honestly laughable how bad it is. The narrator’s mispronunciations make a frankly embarrassing perspective even worse.

Indeed. They were not killed in the war, but were systemically slaughtered in the Nazi factories of death.

@xingfenzhen want to know why it got bad reviews? because it showed just why Germany would want to go to war. After being humilated infront of the whole wrold, no wonder Hitler came to power with his promise to basically wipe his arse with the versae treaty

@sunn0isamazing There are about 450 million Chinese and about 12 million Jews at that time, you do the math.

Good documentary – except for that slight error at the beginning.
“Six million Jews died in this terrible war”.
The biggest lie since the Virgin Mary!

Disgraceful!

Is it ever mentioned in this series how Henry Ford gave Shitler the (our) state secret formula for iso-butyl rubber … artificial non- porous for “jeep” (whatever they called theirs) tired which then enabled Shitler to invde Poland? Is it mentioned how Schitler was once but a bagman for his party, and how when the Pope refused to contribute, soon “fell” out a window to his death, and then how the next one gave gold and passports to South America to help some escape?

@VampireYoshi
yes, the World at War is better. But I’m waiting for the program, which says more about Eastern Europe in aspect of WWII. I don’t think that English or Americans are able to do it at all :/ There is only one English historian with a good knowledge of Eastern Europe and Soviet Union – Norman Davies. So at the moment – the books are the best source of information about that

I watched all series twice, shown on Discovery in Ireland. We must watch the version with different lector, dude

But yes, the maps are simply not accurate. I find this series good for the spooky music they play, rather than any in-depth analysis of the history. For history, I suggest The World at War.

You do realize that they clarify the statement about two seconds later as being what the Reich CLAIMED about Poland, whereafter, on 1 September, the Wehrmacht marched in…similar to Imperial Japanese claims about Chinese forces attacking Manchuria before they invaded China.

the worst piece of crap I have ever seen. I’ve watched all parts. They cant even draw the map of Poland properly. There is no such a countries like Lithuania, Latvia or Estonia on their maps. But the most riddiculous is sentence: “On 31th of August, 1939 Poland attacked Germany”. Who did this program??? Complete ignorants!!!

it can be brought on Amazon for very cheap price due in part because of its extremely negative reviews. The review don’t do it justice, which is why I put it up here.
