Editorial Reviews

The 20th Century began with America on the sidelines of world conflict, but before the end of the century, America would stand alone as the most powerful military nation in the history of the world. This 2 DVD set documents America's rise, from the horse-drawn cannons of World War I to the laser guided missiles of Desert Storm. Century of Warfare chronicles the crucial battle engagements that shaped the outcomes of the great conflicts of the 20th Century, changing the world and the face of America, forever. Beginning with the events preceding World War I, Century of Warfare details the combat history of World War I, World War II, Korea, Vietnam, and Operation Desert Storm, using authentic archival footage and extensive interviews with veterans and historians.

Format: DVD
I bought this for my husband who is in the military. He is also a history buff. I agreed to watch it with him, not all that happy about it. I quickly changed my mind. The transitions from scene to scene are nice and they way they describe the events is very real. For a documentary, this was entertaining.

Format: DVD
This video is good only for a few things: a) the 1st Chapter on Disc 1 (United States Becomes a World Power)which covers time from the Reconstruction to the popping off of WWI. I could see showing about 5 minutes of this at the beginning of a 1865+ US survey course to set the stage for what will happen over the next few weeks b) 2nd disc - the Korean War chapter is pretty good, despite the monotone narrator. c)Operation Storm - good info, but horrible dvd quality in this Chapter.

IMPORTANT HEADS UP: There is no chapter jumping within a war. For instructors or buffs interested in a specific battle, you'll need to fast forward manually (time consuming), rather than click on a chapter to get there. Make time notations on your own as to when a specific event takes place on the disk.

The best part is the 1st chapter; "United States Becomes a World Power, 1900 to 1917"
It provides a good overview of US military situation at the beginning of the 20th century. This, I have not seen in any other presentation.
WW1, WW2, Korea, Vietnam and the Gulf Wars are covered, but not in detail. It emphasizes campaigns, and not the strategy or politics of the time. If you want an overview of US involvement in those events, this is great. Otherwise, this material is a subset of other War Documentaries. Else, the video quality was notoriously bad, which makes me question the authenticity of my DVD. Thus, I recommend to buy from a known name, instead of the lower price, as I did.

Not sure why all the bad reviews. This is exactly what it says it is! My husband is a war buff and loves the DVDs. I would not recommend them to someone who knows next to nothing about WW1, 2, Korean Conflict and Vietnam (which I am). They seem to assume you are watching with some prior knowledge. If you are...then 5 stars.
