A reverse of the story for once.
16 July 2007 | by See all my reviews

This documentary made its appearance on British television screens 4 years ago and provides a LONG over due reverse history study of the American War of 1775 -1783. American reviews often don't know where to go with this one because it goes against a lot of what is staple in their education system. Richard Holmes, as always, is informative and interesting and often gets hands on and practical with the battlefields. Interestingly, a lot of his motivation for making this was triggered after watching 'The Patriot', so appalled was he of the historical butchering that the film made he even helped in the publication of a book by the same name.

This is a much needed educational history of the war, particularly for anyone British, who knows nothing of it but the rough and sorely one-sided American accounts that are about as easy to believe as a snake flying.
