Outstanding series
4 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Among the finest historical documentaries I have ever seen. There are many shows about the wars of history, but few get to the real meat of the battles like this one. Although some time is spent on the events leading up to the battle, the most interesting moments revolve around the battle itself.

The father and son team spend a great deal of time showing the viewer what it may have been like to be involved in these battles from either side of the conflict. There are excellent computer animations of the troop formations and movements, prevailing winds, weather, terrain, and other important battlefield considerations. The progress of the battle from start to finish is shown also using detailed computer animation to display troop armaments, arching arrows, etc. The Snows also test modern reproductions of the armaments used in each conflict, displaying their accuracy or killing potential. Some time is spent on the aftermath of the contest, and the often tremendous loss of life and injury inflicted.

I hope that the Snows continue to create such fascinating material in the future. They have apparently hosted another series called "20th Century Battlefields," but I have unfortunately been unable to see it yet. If it is anything like "Battlefield Britain" then I'm sure it would also be excellent. This series should not be missed by any with an interest in military history.
