An excellent historical rendition,
This review is from: Gods And Generals [DVD]  (DVD)
Listen i am a black man who also happened to serve 6 years as an officer in the British Army (as a Tank Commander). Let me say that i think that this film is quite excellent. I am a big fan of that part of American History not least because it is not quite as black and white (excuse the pun) as some people would like to think.
I guess there's the military part of me that marvels at the excellence of the Southern Generals (particularly Stonewall Jackson on whom this film concentrates)and delights in the human dimension that often moved me to tears as i watched this masterpiece
Trust me if you liked Gettysburg by the same director and are into the American Civil War this is a film you must must watch
