This review is from: The American Civil War (6 DVD Box Set) (DVD)
This is a very well put together documentary and will appeal to historians and military buffs as it informs of the technology advances and industrialisation of war. i.e. American Civil War is the first Industrial War.
Dealing with forensic evidence that changes the view of certain myths and battles of the civil war such as the Hornets Nest.
Enthralling for those interested in strategy and tactics rather than just the overall narrative and 'a must' for weaponary information. The dramatisation is well done though concerned with details of battles and the characters involved in particular events, such as the generals and the forensic view of the locations, rather than the emphasis being on the historical and political overview alone.
Very concise and 'a must' for those interested in the people 'on the ground' and effects and process of technology used to destroy people in wars.
