Superb show w/great Father & Son hosts.
23 April 2009 | by (S. Lake Tahoe, CA) – See all my reviews

This is an excellent series that covers all sorts of battles. Dan & Peter Snow do a really good job covering all sorts of battles. They each take different sides to the story & are really energetic & seem to be knowledgeable on all sorts of the subjects. I don't know if they know all they are talking about, but they sure are enthusiastic about the way they tell the stories, which brings you right in. This is an excellent series which is well produced & presented & would make a great addition to anybody interested in some of the major historical battles. I'm not sure if more episodes have been done or not, but this has the makings of a fantastic history channel series as there are many battles that haven't been covered. Again if you haven't seen this, be sure to catch Father & Son Snow investigate these historical battles.
