This is as fine a collection of material devoted to a single historical subject as A&E Home Video or anyone else (apart from the producers of those Ken Burns specials) has yet issued on DVD. The two-disc set, in a slipcase, is deceptively imposing incontent given its seemingly limited running time. One hundred and fifty minutes seems a paltry amount of time in which to cover the most heavily analyzed single battle of the 20th century, but this package does it justice. Disc one is the real center of the set, containing the 100-minute documentary "Tora, Tora, Tora: The Real Story of Pearl Harbor." There may be some disagreement over the material in the introductory section, as when a scholar-observer remarks that America was fairly stable and content,and "things were going well" in the 1920s and 1930s, seemingly ignoring the Great Depression. What the man may mean is that America's primary focus was on the internal economic difficulties of the country, not strife in Europe or Asia, although even thatisn't true; the documentary ignores the fact that there was a surprising degree of sympathy in the United States on behalf of the Chinese, who were under attack by Japan from 1931 onward. But to have observed that fact would have made a lie of the centralpremise of a couple of the other observers heard from here, who argue that the war with Japan was fueled by anti-Asian racism in America. Once one gets past these questionable hypotheses, however, the account of actual events leading to the run-up to Pearl Harbor is fascinating, and one gets a minute-by-minute description of the battle as well as the personnel involved on both sides, and the aftermath and what became of them. Disc two is taken up primarily by "Admiral Chester Nimitz: Thunder in the Pacif
