Editorial Reviews

From the first musket shots at Lexington and Concord to the precision-guided munitions in modern-day Baghdad, America s history has been forged in the heat of battle. AMERICA AT WAR presents twenty-five documentaries from THE HISTORY CHANNEL, charting U.S. military conflict over two centuries. This fourteen disc set explores key moments of the American Revolution, the Alamo, the Civil War, World Wars I and II, as well as the conflicts in Korea, Vietnam, the Persian Gulf, and Iraq. The chronological collection draws upon the expertise of noted historians, military authorities, engineers, and war correspondents to convey the personal side of conflict not often found in history books. A trove of archival footage and documents brings viewers closer than ever to the heated heart of combat.

Not a bad collection of America at war, though some things are missing like the Spanish and American War. World War II could've been better explained, but the Vietnam, Iraqi Freedom, Desert Storm, and Revolutionary War DVDs were quite impressive! I would recommend buying this collection just for those alone!

I bought this product as a birthday present for my father who is very intersted in US history, particularly our military history. He watched all of them, says they are excellent, I know he learned a lot of great facts and there didn't seem to be anything wrong with them when they got there in terms of shipping, etc.

My family and I are really into history and the History Channel, especially anything to do with military and World War II. We love this series and can't wait to finish it when I have time off from work. It was also much cheaper to buy here rather than the History Channel website, so I am glad I shopped at Amazon.com before I purchased it at History Channel.

Well I recieved this as a Christmas Present due to my complaining of History Channel's lack of ANYTHING to do with history anymore. And I've watched almost all and I love it. The WWII one I figured was gonna be bland and just re show the things EVERYONE's scene before. But it didn't show Hitler's rise to power and all of that over played stuff...but rather an insight into the last days of it. The WWI DVD was also VERY well done. Hands down, if you're new to Military History maybe this isn't for you but if you're a person who's going deeper into war history GET THIS DVD!

This pack contains everything you would want to know about US wars, I was very impressed. I also liked how it came in a full set and in order of when the wars happened. I have always been a fan of the history channel so I think that the history is accurate.

Overall it was good. Each war are created by different people so some were better than others. The Revolutionary War and the Alamo were both excellent. Each documentary included not only the battles but talked about the issues surrounding the war. The Civil War is the weakest in the series. It looked like the documentary was just an excuse to show a lot of death and violence. WWII was another strong one. It talked about the end of the war and the Nuremberg Trials. The Vietnam war had some amazing up close war footage.

"America at War" is book ended with two stellar looks at two very different conflicts, but in-between, it largely fails to deliver the goods in terms of comprehensive content. As I've stated before, these programs are all well made, but leave me as a viewer wanting more. At best this set is a nice sampler platter, but most interested parties would be best served by searching out individual comprehensive sets. To try and sum up WWII in two discs or the Vietnam War in one is a travesty, no matter how good the programs do their job at covering a limited scope.
