“War in HD”
DVD ($29.95 / A&E Home Video)

Combining two compelling History Channel mini-series into one six-DVD collection, this box set brings the stories of both World War II and Vietnam into remarkable, dramatic focus with a combination of restored color film footage from private collections, museums and U.S. government archives, interviews with veterans, and narration by actor Gary Sinise and others. At a combined total of nearly 14 hours for both “WWII in HD” and “Vietnam in HD,” it’s a uniquely immersive experience into the sights, sounds and wrenching emotional responses to combat by those who experienced it firsthand.
