Axis of War DVD

Yesterday morning I visited the local supermarket and happened to see that they had a DVD on sale entitled AXIS OF WAR - PART ONE - THE FIRST OF AUGUST. The cover showed what looked like a dog fight between biplane fighters taking place above a crowed battlefield. As my current major interest is the interwar period, it looked like it might be something that would interest me. I was not wrong.

The DVD is the first part in a trilogy that has been made by a major Chinese film maker, and it deals with Nanchang uprising of the Chinese Civil War in 1927.

I have not managed to see the whole film, but I was so impressed by the sheer scale of the battle scenes that I have ordered the second part (AXIS OF WAR - PART TWO - MY LONG MARCH) which was scheduled to be released three days ago. If it is half as good as the first DVD, it will be an excellent film to watch.
