This is a fabulous collection of great war films all contained within an attractive 8 disc boxset. The films included in the set are: -

Full Metal Jacket
Stanley Kubrick's brilliant Vietnam War Drama. Expect serious war action with tanks heavy machine gun fire, snipers and marines pushed to the limit both physically and mentally as the drama unfolds.


Kelly's Heros
All star cast in a WWII plot surrounding the concept of stealing Nazi confiscated gold bullion. Lieutenant Kelly leads the dangerous mission behind enemy lines on occupied France to locate and steal the gold bars.


We Were Soldiers
Mel Gibson stars in this powerful and bloody film based on a true story. The complete storyline is not however fully factual and occasionally revises the truth, but is one of the few films that depict the Americans in a somewhat better light over the Vietnam war. Plenty of action and drama as would be expected.


Where Eagles Dare
Classic film where commandos are given the task to rescue a high command US general from a heavily guarded SS fortress called Schloss Adler. The rescue must take place quickly before the General can be broken by the Nazis. Problems occur and the question becomes whether everyone can be trusted or not...

Memphis Belle
A 1943 WWII drama set in the skies as a ten man bomber crew are on a dangerous mission to attack and bomb a stratigic target in Bremen. They are all feeling uneasy about this, their last mission together and this gets worse when the two planes preceding them are shot down. This a gripping tale of courage.


The Dirty Dozen
Much acclaimed war film starring Lee Marvin as the man to command a team of criminals already convicted of serious crimes ranging from rape to murder. The criminals, already serving life sentences or facing death have nothing to lose, so in the hope of a pardon following a successful mission, they agree to sign up to what can only be seen as a likely suicide mission. The mission to parachute into a heavily armed German officer's retreat, destroy the facilities and then kill all the nazis.


Battle Of The Bulge
Second World War drama set in the months after D-Day when the Germans were thought to be broken. Almost 20,000 US soldiers were killed in this German surprise offensive in the Ardennes to drive a wedge between the allied forces and capture Antwerp and Belgium. The allies were caught off guard as they were planning their own offensive and many of the battle troops were inexperienced in combat. The Germans ultimately failed to gain their expected objectives, but although severely reduced, did manage to cause a significant dealy to the allies' timetable.


Escape To Victory
A stadium in occupied Paris is the stage for this unusual soccer match. Prisoners of War agree to play a game of football against the Nazis as a sort of exhibition game. Despite the not unexpected biased referee, the game becomes a close struggle and plans to escape during the match have to be put on hold due to the involvement of the game. Watch out for cameo appearances of a few soccer legends....

Steve -I think cpt_spalding was commenting on the fact that Full Metal Jacket was the only good film in the collection and not that your company is poor

lol GiftOfSound, you've managed to come on here to defend yourself and made yourself look totally stupid, if you're the most intelligent employee I certainly won't be buying from you in the future. Why does your domain information show as it does? Is it a tax dodge or have you just not updated it?

Ok Sorry Guys - Hands Up

I read a negative on that thread. Thanks for the domain details info.

As for buying, try us maybe we can win you over.

Well if you get the essential war collection back I might well do that :) Cheers for the information on where the buy button was, makes sense, but perhaps something appearing saying out of stock may be better, just my opinion, anyway good luck and thanks for coming back to put ya hands up, very big of you :)
