Should be a much watch by both sides
27 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am a huge history buff and know that history "Is written by the winner". This does contain a large amount of the untold stories of U.S. history that many of us did not learn in school. And just like the "told" stories of U.S. History it runs into it's own bias. I don't think that anyone would call Oliver Stone as unbiased in the stories he tells. As a true believer that you look at as many sides of history as possible and then the truth will lie someone inside of all.

As you can probably tell I am not a big fan of this series as our "true" history of the U.S.. I do consider it a "must watch" because it does bring different points of view to a large audience. I hope this will do what it does for me and that is to get everyone to "think". I don't see this series converting people into everything Oliver Stone will have you think this was really how it was. But I think it will get most people to think "well I did not know that also happened" and incorporate it into things that they also have learned. Again no matter what side you fall on it will make you think, so is worth watching.
