I've been trying to get my hands on The Great War DVD series from 1964. I've found some discs on Ebay from the Daily Mail.
Being in the States, I don't know a thing about the Daily Mail's promotions. Can anyone fill me in on why the Daily Mail is publishing them?
Apparently, there are different series by the Daily Mail. Were they promotional supplements to increase circulation?
Anyone have some they want to sell?

You can get the series from Naval and Military Press.

Naval and Military Press' website offers the abridged 10 part series, not the complete 26 episode series. Anyone have the complete 26 part series?

Some used copies of the BBC box set available here

Complete series here

The Daily Mail set is the same series as the official box set (but without the book) and is a 'gimmick' they often use to boost circulation.

Definitely worth getting
