How this series of documentaries won awards is beyond me. I could only bear to watch 40 minutes of it and I had to turn it off I was so bored. It doesn't draw you into the war at all, it just chugs along from one battle to the next with the narrators voice droaning in the background to a bunch of re-enactors who look more like they're out on a Sunday stroll rather than fighting for their lives in a real battle, where's the passion? Where's the fear and the emotion?. I was expecting so much more, some pictures of the actual time period, accounts of people who were there, but all you get is a description of every battle like "this regiment went here, and that regiment went there, and then they opened fire on each other" and it's just so boring! Add to that the appalling picture and sound quality, it looks and sounds like something that was recorded on a VHS video and then left on the shelf for the last 30 years growing mould! If you're looking for a good documentary about the ACW, then do yourselves a favour and avoid this one!
