Lazy and ignorant
Continual misrepresentation of England being the UK is typical of cheap TV (already highlighted by the use of using the wrong stock video for the accompanying narrative). Poor TV.

Not a patch on World At War
You would get the opinion that Churchill won the war single handedly from this, rather than actually making some awful mistakes too. Too much repetition of both narration and footage. Some glaring errors in some descriptions also, for example the B-25 Mitchell is by no means a giant aircraft, it's not even a heavy bomber. Some good expansion on various areas of the war, but this is only to be expected on something that is two thirds longer than WaW

Lovin' this series
Well written and narrated. A fair presentation of an important part of history.
