A brilliant revelatory documentary, in spite of the ludicrousness of a bunch of overweight men traipsing around in bright clean British Army Uniforms. I would love to know if they were actors hired by the producers, or actual re-enacters. I've never thought much about the Revolution, but this documentary offered revelations, first,that the loyalists were a much stronger element of the population than American mythology permits; the actual story of the significance of Washington Crossing the Delaware (the battle for Trenton), how touch-and-go American victory actually was, and how much our ultimate victory at Yorktown depended on the aid of the French fleet.In the light of 'Freedom Fries' and our excoriation of the French following 9/11, this is a great correction. Watch it, show it to your children, try to correct the myths that get passed to us as 'American History'. I enjoyed it immensely.
