'Nazi Mega Weapons - Season Three'
(2-DVD / NR / 2016 / PBS)

Overview: In the quest for world domination, the Nazis built some of the biggest and deadliest pieces of military hardware in history. This third season in the PBS series includes episodes on the now infamous Blitzkrieg, Hitler's Island Megafortress, and the Battleship Yamato.

DVD Verdict: Overall, the whole 'Nazi Mega Weapons' series is highly informative, no matter which side your allegiance falls upon. Spanning several programs the Nazi regime endlessly pursued to improve their chances of winning World War II. It was also very dark and disturbing on how they used prisoners to achieve those goals. On two discs with six episodes contained, 'Nazi Mega Weapons - Season Three' (in terms of nuts and bolts of the weapons systems) gives us an inside look (quite like never before) of Hitler's history within World War II. In truth, it's a mixed quality bag, narration and presentation wise, but nobody can shun the impact these real-life reels will have on you.

And that may be just down to the fact that 'Nazi Mega Weapons - Season Three' comes across exactly like a History Channel produced show, with a combination of history, CGI, and reality TV style fake drama. That aside, as actual footage has been shown over and over on the History Channel for decades anyway, the research is narrow and the series sometimes interviews people with questionable expertise.

But, here in 'Nazi Mega Weapons - Season Three' we discover that in his quest for German control of Europe, Hitler demanded some of the biggest and deadliest pieces of military hardware in history. In this series, the shock and awe tactics of the Blitzkrieg, the unparalleled fortifications on The Channel Islands, Hitler's mountain power-house, topped by the awe inspiring Eagle's Nest and the Fuhrer's Megasub - a weapon that could have won the war for the Nazis - are all explored. The remains of these terror weapons and incredible defensive structures are spread across Europe, although it can take a specialist to spot the evidence.

Also, 'Nazi Mega Weapons - Season Three' follows a team of experts on a dark journey of exploration through Europe's mountains, forests and industrial heartland to uncover a Nazi world that has been hidden for decades. Using drama reconstructions, carefully crafted CGI and rarely seen archive, each episode reveals the personal stories of the men who designed, built and operated Hitler's terrifying mega weapons.

In addition, in a bid to dominate the Pacific, Japan built the biggest battleship in the world and a network of defensive lines, bunkers, and fortifications across the island of Okinawa. Our experts track down evidence of these weapons of terror. This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.78:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs.
