Title Best
Sword of War (Blu-ray)R4

     As noted Sword of War has appeared in a number of versions. It was originally called Barbarossa or Barbarossa: Siege Lord in Europe. The Region B UK Blu-ray runs only 123:31 as does the Region B German release (which adds as extras a featurette (7:19), film promo (8:15) and the original trailer. The Region A US Blu-ray is listed on Amazon but is showing as currently unavailable, with a running time of 126 minutes. Our Region B release, with the correct aspect ratio and a running time of 128:55 is the longest cut of the film currently available. While I do own the UK Blu-ray, I have not been enthusiastic enough to do a frame by frame comparison to sort out the differences. Our version is fine.
