DVD Review: Secrets Of The Cold War
The History Channel’s Secrets Of The Cold War DVD promises that we will discover incredible stories that lie at the heart of the 20th Century’s most intriguing conflict, and whilst it does deliver this, impressing with a lot of information that I never knew before, it does so in a slightly misleading fashion.
Rather than being a six part series, revealing the latest information on the subjects chosen, it is a collection of six, rather old documentaries, created independently of each other, and bought together presumably to create a sellable DVD.
As I said previously, it does deliver the goods, and will be a great addition to any modern history buff’s DVD collection. From the fascinating look at some of the Soviet’s Top Secret Weapons, including a massive hydrofoil boat/plane hybrid, right through to a look at the Shadow Warriors, Secrets brings together a nice group of documentaries that lift the lid on a era that many of us grew up in, yet had little understanding of.
