1.0 out of 5 stars Non compatable with my DVD player 1 Dec 2013
By Annie
Format:DVD
The reason I gave this one star is because I was unable to watch this DVD! I bought mine from Amazon USA, it is identical to the one presented here. I was looking to buy a copy that I could be sure would play in Europe, I live in Norway. The seller listed obviously does not have this DVD in stock and is in the US - so no go there. I am annoyed. Anyone else looking to buy this, apparently excellent, DVD should be sure it is compatable with their DVD player.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ultimate Civil War Series - 150th Anniversary Edition (DVD) 13 Nov 2012
By Jeb - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I just received my copy of "Ultimate Civil War Series" (150th Anniversary Edition) & am just blown away!
Being a life-long student of that conflict, I am well-versed in the events presented in this series.I have yet to find any errors of facts, & they present an amazing amount of information in each 45 minute segment! If your not a serious student of history, I could see you getting bored with the commentary, but the visual effects generally complement the audio well. This isn't a cheesy documentary that was churned out for the sesquicentennial- the producers have given us a high-quality film at a bargain basement price, & I applaud their efforts!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great care was taken to keep the visuals authentic and accurate 17 July 2012
By Ib Melchior - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
There was great care taken in the writing of this documentary, and in the shooting of the original recreations for the film series, as well as the appropriate and authentic use of very dramatic re-enactment footage. This is the first series of its kind produced for the 150th anniversary in 1080p HD. Care was also taken to give a balanced portrayal of events -- highlighting the more far-reaching and important events that represented the war and the american people on the whole -- but condensing more than 4 years of incredibly dense and active history into a few hours would be a difficult task for anyone taking on that challenge. I do not believe that there are any errors of fact in these 7 films, but if there were omissions, it was not intentional, simply a matter of condensing so much history into a prescribed approximately 45 minute running time for each episode. I believe strongly that this series, at such a fantastic price, is ideal for educators and students of all levels and appropriate for all ages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Worth Watching 12 Jun 2013
By Mark A Spencer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As someone who spent his first 9 years in Massachusetts and the next 9 in Virginia digging up minie-balls and in Maryland in the '60s, I have always been fascinated by The Civil War. When other kids were reading about dinosaurs or sports figures, I was reading about Antietam, Gettysburg, and Vicksburg; about Lee and Jackson, Grant and Sherman.

I have watched the Ken Burns The Civil War many times and it is superb. But the Burns series is mostly still pictures and the individual consequences, personal letters, and driving social forces. I lamented a lack of battlefield details and live action.

The Ultimate Civil War provides that. While beginning with the underlying causes of the war (Episode 1, Sins Of The Fathers) which I consider the best summary of the causes of the war I have seen, the subsequent episodes move promptly into the battles.

The battle maps, while briefly shown (well there IS the pause button of course) are detailed, clear and excellent. The maps of the battle of Gettysburg particularly showed the complex and sometimes chaotic nature of the attacks and counterattacks. I particularly liked the way that arrows of attacks were straight when successful but curved back when failed. I compliment the map-drawer.

There are still photos and live re-enactments, and they are woven together well.

You should not confuse the Ken Burns series with this one; they are different in focus, style and presentation much as West Side Story is different from Romeo and Juliet, but are both are telling the same same story. You should have both. Still, if I only one, I would prefer The Ultimate Civil War.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great collection of Civil War History 1 Nov 2012
By D. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
These 2 DVDs do a great job of giving a wide scope of coverage to the American Civil War. To condense such a major event in our history into a 2 DVD set is difficult, but the creators of this Ultimate Civil War did an excellent job; holding true to the facts, combining authentic reenactments, and presenting authentic history. Great for new Civil War enthusiasts and also great for the long-time student of the American Civil War.

4.0 out of 5 stars a must for Civil War buffs,or beginners. 10 Feb 2013
By GJ - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This series skims,highlights,and focus' on event leading,throughtout,and after the Civil War. The skimming in the first chapter("Sins of the Fathers") is basically from the Foundng Fathers,leaving debatable issues such as slavery,open.it highlights the rise of the abolitionist movement,key figures in and around the 1830.The effects of the movement on states seeking admittion.Reaching South Carolina's(&others) Succession,Lincoln's election,and the first shots fired.the final chapter New Birth of Freedom.Gives us a look at the end of the war and the final battle fought,by Sherman's western army,against a force of 90,000 southern troops .Two days after Lincoln's death.And the capture of Pres.Jeff Davis and his 3000 men,Almost a month later.from there,a brief summary of the reconstruction,and the treatmet the South received from a avenging North:Along with the Civil Rights movement.The five chapters in between give seemlingly unbias,and equaltreatment too both North and South.Eastern and Western theatres,durning the war. Troops movements,shown on maps.Political pressures from both sides durning the campains,Letters,reports journals read.And of course re-enactments.The Valor,Glory and defeat,of the commanders and troops involved in the various actions also mentioned.
For the low price an the amount of information this vidio is well worth it. This past Nov.I visted my brother in GA.We spent,3days visting spots that were in the path of Sherman's march too Atlanta.So when that part of the series was reached- I was a bit surprised at how well it matched what I read and herd(on tours).This was anoher plus in my book.These people did do there job putting this vidio together.The minus which makes me round this down too a 4 from a 4.5(choice not offerd).Vidio quility is a little weak in some spots,like the films been shown to many times,or not cleaned properly(Maybe Blu-version is better):The music at times over powers the narrator in spots.Finally on the first chapter ,i had too skip the end of the segmet on John Brown due too audio,&picture problem(about 2minutes).The last disc a letter that is suppose too read about the feelings toward Lincolns death,from a Ny woman-is not here ,but replaced by unbalanced music,and the narrator babbling something not too clearly.Then skips too a southern woman,who seems to of felt his assination was a terrible loss for the South as well as the North.Apparently Pres.Davis had simular feelings.Aside from minor audio,and vidio problems-this, set is worthy addition too your vidio libary.And just perhapes it will lead you to come too or find your own conclusions-to the bloodiest time of American history....
