Mighty fine documentary
16 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First of all, this film came out before "Liberty" and "The American Revolution" which had big name personnalies to help carry them along. And yet, I think that this film/documentary stands on its own merits. Charles Kuralt of the old CBS show "On The Road" narrates with his folksy voice which gives it a nice feel. The Revolutionary War deals strictly with the military movements without going into a lot of politics of war. I wish it had got into more of the details of the battles and it could have used more of the quotes from the common soldiers. It uses live action modern reenactors for the battle scenes along with the oil paintings and drawings of the 18th century. Also the use of historians interjecting their expertize on the subject are done in a matter that dosen't empede the flow of the film. Tho it's far from perfect, but for it's time a mighty fine documentary......
