Fantastic Work by all involved in this Series
12 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is probably the best history series I have ever watched. The father son team of Peter and Dan Snow have come up with an amazing technique of using a portable model of the battlefields in combination with very well played battle scenes and actors playing roles on both sides who talk directly to the audience about their feelings before, during, and after the battles.

They went into amazing detail of such things as how the Roman army's discipline and battle formations made it almost invincible to much larger forces. The battle with the Spainish Armada was especially well done. The battle scenes and explanations were incredible in all of the episodes.

This series proves to me that truth can be stranger and more interesting than fictional movies in general.
