5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for history lovers, 28 April 2005
This review is from: Fall Of Eagles - Complete Series [DVD][1974] (DVD)
This series is absolutly fanatastic! I saw 2 espisodes 13 years ago and have been searching for it ever since. When I saw it on Amazon UK I had to have it and went out and bought a multi regional DVD player. It was worth every penny I spent. Historicly speaking this series is as accurate as I have ever seen with any other program. The dirctors managed to cover a 60 year period and hit most of the major points. They cover the infancy of nationalism, liberalism,the Balkan probems with which we still live today, the unification of Germany, the influence of Queen Victoria's family on 19th century European history, rise of marxisim and the inablity of the Hohenzollern, Romanovs, Hapsburg royal houses to recognize the signs of change as it was happening around them. The acting is great and the customs are wonderful. Patrick Stewart makes a wonderful Lenin and Curd Juergens is great as Bismark, Gayle Hunnicutt and Charles Kay are fantastic as the last Tsar and Tsarina of Russia. After having read so much about the history of these countries, their royal houses and political conflicts it was wonderful to see them come alive in this show.
