For those that enjoy learning, seeing and reviewing history, this is a great DVD. The enactments and costumes are well done for each time period. This DVD also clears up some misunderstood facts of history and provides extra details about unknown facts of history. This is also great for the classroom of any age! I gave it four stars because I wanted to see more of the real scenes and footage.

Interesting look at History's Triumphs and Tragedies

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I enjoyed this little DVD. Leonard Nimoy narrates it and that make it better, but the events start at the earliest period of man's history and then brings you forward to the next events that formed and shaped our world as it is today.

Great DVD to share with your children and grandchildren. History need to be important to them and this brings those dry facts found in school books alive and makes them live again.

A very delightful find, I have always been interested in world history but this was exceptionally good.
