Movie Reviews

From someone who isn't a war or history fanatic...
J. Macmaniman | Plymouth Meeting, PA United States | 02/03/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I bought this because I thought the topic was interesting. I'm a big fan of the History Channel for the way it engages you, but not the type to read history books in my spare time either. Don't ask me the dates of anything. I'm here for the story... and that's exactly what you get here.

I especially appreciate the inclusion of the Coast Guard, which serves a very important function, despite it coming off as a footnote more then anything else history-wise. To be honest, I probably would not have bought the set if they weren't in there.

No, I'm not in the military, but still found this to be a very worthwhile set to add to my collection. Did I learn something? Yes. Was I entertained? Yes. Have I watched it more then twice since I've purchased it (6 months ago)? Yes. Do I recommend this set? Yes.

Hopefully some of that helps you in your decision."
