Watched the first episode- these recolorized films look great and really make the events very vivid, especially the aerial scenes. I like it, thanks for the hint

The German subtitles are really crappy- numbers and figures are translated wrongly and sometimes it gets ridiculous. F.e. Admiral Nimitz hipboots at Pearl harbour whwn he took office inspecting the damage are translated into stylish fashion boots.....

Repeated pictures of inaccurate places they really should do their back ground checks on where and when the footage was taken

I have never been a fan of 'colourised' photographs or film footage as in my opinion, it always looks false. That said I thought I would at least watch one episode to see whether it was worth watching more.

I picked out the 'Stalingrad' episode and was very disappointed indeed. The colourised footage did not enhance any of it from it's original black and white format, and much of the footage does not relate to Stalingrad at all. Worse still was the extremely weak narrative to back it up, with much nothing objective or worth further thought. It all seemed to be put together in a rush and without depth.

Not one I will be watching again.

Regards Richard.

I agree and not much new info.

Some interesting photos and video I haven't seen before that's about it as to why I'll look over the series. On #6 now.

Besides all the mentioned flaws before, which there definitely are. I must say I enjoyed watching it.

Kind regards,
