Based on the popularity of the Horatio Hornblower series alone I would have thought this set would enjoy great sales and fabulous reviews! The third party prices for this collection are a steal, especially considering the caliber of programs included! Napoleon, Benedict Arnold, Shackleton, The Lost Battalion, Longitude, and of course Horatio Hornblower. You can't go wrong with this 14 disk set beautifully produced by the A&E (Arts & Entertainment) Channel.

This is most certainly a must have collection for even the casual A&E fan. This set contains six of A&E's best efforts at a modest price. A purchase from a third party source makes it a steal! What a cost effective way to begin your own A&E collection.

This package is worth having as part of every home movie collection. I loved the Longitude movie and learned a lot with it. Still have to see the rest, some twenty hours of masterpieces!

Not all of the 'adventures' presented here do justice to the subject (be that an historical or a fictional character) but the price is sure right. I was in search of the movie Longitude when I came across this offering and truth be known I'd have paid the full price of the package for the movie and special features associated with that movie. What an amazing tale of the triumph of one man in the face of bureaucratic ignorance and pride, not to mention the 'mirror image' of his champion going through much of the same in the following century. The Hornblower tales (and again, the special features associated with same) were also quite good as fictional swashbuckling. Both Shackleton and Napolean fell short in my view though I must admit it might have been too unwieldy to try to encompass the whole of either of those lives. And I must also admit to a personal prejudice...I just couldn't stop giggling at the idea of Kelsey Grammer as George Washington...Jeff Daniels would be my choice. The surprise treat of the package was the truly remarkable tour de force of To The Ends Of The Earth. I place this right up there with Master and Commander as presenting a true and complete picture of what it meant to 'go down to the sea in ships'. In all it was way more entertainment (and not a little enlightenment) than the price would suggest. Bravo A&E!
