This 12-chapter documentary series, created and produced by Academy Award winning writer/director Oliver Stone. People should really know and understand their shared and complicated history. They have to recall the small details and forgotten players that influenced some of the biggest events from America's past.Written by
Bazza the Beast
A 750 page companion book was written by Stone and Kuznick that delves further into the main players, events, locations and the how and why of the events preceding and following the Cold War. See more »
Here we go again. An excellent documentary that shows the world from the perspective of the whole world instead of just the view "The United States of God bless America". Queue the 1 star ratings from the "true patriots" that say that anything that says USA isn't perfect must be propaganda. This sort of brainwashing is exactly what is described in episode five. So please don't be fooled by this. This is actual history, if you look this up you will find the events actually took place. Even though sometimes it may seem Stone is trying to make the soviets less horrible it does not mean they weren't horrible, that just means that they weren't the monsters that the American public was let think they were and that the US escalated the cold war just as much as the Soviets. I am actually astonished that the people in the so called "greatest country in the world" can't take a look at it self and realize that they might of done some wrong in the past.
Please ignore ignorant rantings about anti-U.S. propaganda.
