CENTURY OF WAR: 6 DVD SET

THE WAR FILE    Book Number: 91835    Product format: Unknown

Running time 480 minutes plus extensive additional interactive material to test your knowledge and ask the experts, the six discs are as follows: The Boer War, The Great War, The History of World War Two, The Six Day War 1967, The Falklands War and The Gulf War 1991. These new and updated visual accounts combine riveting storylines with much newly gathered information and truly devastating pictures of the eerie landscape of war on the grandest scale. Momentous events were portrayed through front-line film footage and carefully researched contemporary accounts. The story of the Arab-Israeli War of 1967 has echoes of which are still heard today in the Middle East. In the May of that year Egypt, under President Nasser, blocked the Tiran Straits to Israeli shipping and began to gather huge numbers of troops in the Sinai Peninsula. At the same time King Hussein's Jordan allowed Iraqi troops across their borders. The film provides a unique 'virtual' environment of the battlefields and new insights into military history's most compelling events. The Falklands War film includes atmospheric battle reconstructions and 3D animated graphics of the famous battles such as Goose Green, Tumbledown Mountain and Wireless Ridge plus recollections of British and Argentinean servicemen. In August 1990, Saddam Hussein invaded Kuwait, its oil-rich neighbour. A coalition against Iraq was formed and it struck back with awesome power in January 1991. Iraq's air defence system and the country's infrastructure were taken apart by air attacks that used the very latest Line of Fire technology. Six DVDs, colour footage plus stills gallery. Box set.
