An interesting insight into armed forces training
29 August 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This series documents the various training systems used by the United States military. Each hour-length episode focuses on a particular branch of the armed forces.

The production quality is high with concise narration. It manages to show the gritty details and hardships that come from such a high stress training environment without becoming boring.

I think the show is best suited to those with an interest in how things work. It probably caters mainly to a male audience.
