My DVD arrived undamaged/ in good order, although for its intercontinental journey to Switzerland I expected Bush War Books to use more/ better robust/ secure packaging (i.e. eliminate all risk of damage in transit).
Secondly, the SA Post Office tracking number (shipping method selected by me: Tracked Airmail) provided by Bush War Books unfortunately did not work beyond informing me that the package had reached a postal sorting hub in Durban.
Anyway, all's well that ends well!
A well balanced series insofar as it represented the viewpoints - some of them quite thought provoking - of the very many different role-layers and parties involved in the protracted conflict, placing the emphasis more on the human experience than on the purely military. Some of the audio-visual material was superb. Despite the grainy and under-exposed visuals, the quality of which sometimes added rather than distracted from their somber message, it remains a DVD-set well worth having.
Outstanding service! Thank you.
A very cathartic experience for my husband who was involved in the war from start to finish. As were my brother and all my male cousins. The subject has never been openly discussed in the family, and for the first time I see tears in my husband's eyes. He is 67, and I think only now coming to terms with what happened. He does not regret being in the military, in fact, he thrived on it, but I don't think he realized the suppressed effect it had on him.
A lovely series, and I will definitely order more, just give the first one time 'to settle'.
