3 July 2016 | by drjgardnerSee all my reviews

"The Revolution" is a 13 part series on the American Revolutionary War, with a focus on George Washington (which seems natural) but which also covers the activities of Benjamin Franklin, and Benedict Arnold as well as John Paul Jones, John Adams, the war with the Indians, etc. It is mostly a series about the War per se with very little about the politics, economics, or domestic life.

The episodes stick to the facts with few attempts to embellish. The maps and expert interviews are all adequate, although there is a tendency to overuse some of the footage and also to spend a little too much time summarizing. The reenactments are excellent for a docudrama

Personally I preferred the series "Sons of Liberty" (2015) as this series gave some fresh perspectives on the war. Other important TV series include "The Adams Chronicles" (1976), "Washington's Spies" (2014), and Ben Franklin (1974). But there is far too little about the American Revolution so this is a welcome addition.
