Best American Revolutionary War Documenatary
17 July 2016 | by See all my reviews

I wish it was longer. I found myself wanting more after it ended. I have always enjoyed studying American wars. And I think that I possess above average knowledge about American military conflicts. This documentary reminded me that there is always so much more knowledge out there. I learned about specific aspects of this war that I had never known about. I was surprised by some of the details of this documentary. From the research that I have done about this documentary, I have come to learn that it is incredibly historically accurate. You may see reviews that say otherwise but they are nitpicking on small controversial details. The bottom line is that there is not a better American Revolutionary War documentary out there. This documentary is a perfect combination of narration, reenactment, history professors' inside knowledge, and written correspondence such as letters, speeches, etc. I am not a fan of the new History Channel documentary where the entire special is an acted, scripted reenactment. I prefer the dry history specials of the past. I find them more captivating and interesting. This documentary is not completely dry but it is of that style. The viewer is bombarded with detailed information about one of the greatest wars in the history of the world. I recommend that every American watch this but I also think any person would enjoy this documentary because it talks about a very historic time in the history of the world. I loved it!!!
