Editorial Reviews

A mighty compendium of America’s five major military branches--Marines, Navy, Army, Air Force, and Coast Guard--THE BATTLE HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES MILITARY trumpets the myriad strengths of one of the world’s greatest military powers. Plunge headlong into the great battles fought on land, sea, and air. Marvel at the arc of musket to missile. Meet the key figures and lesser-known heroes who have shaped the organization, the strategy, and the future of the United States armed forces. Encompassing over two centuries of courage and conquest, THE BATTLE HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES MILITARY marches through America’s military development from its earliest Coast Guard days to the technological wonders of the Gulf War. With official government documents, extensive combat footage, and commentary by historians and decorated veterans, THE BATTLE HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES MILITARY is a full-scale, full-dress salute to the men and women who give and have given to America’s fight for freedom. DVD Features: Downloadable Historical Documents; Branch Heraldries; Bonus Film: "Pageantry of the Corps"; Interactive Menus; Scene Selection

I bought this because I thought the topic was interesting. I'm a big fan of the History Channel for the way it engages you, but not the type to read history books in my spare time either. Don't ask me the dates of anything. I'm here for the story... and that's exactly what you get here.

I especially appreciate the inclusion of the Coast Guard, which serves a very important function, despite it coming off as a footnote more then anything else history-wise. To be honest, I probably would not have bought the set if they weren't in there.

No, I'm not in the military, but still found this to be a very worthwhile set to add to my collection. Did I learn something? Yes. Was I entertained? Yes. Have I watched it more then twice since I've purchased it (6 months ago)? Yes. Do I recommend this set? Yes.

Hopefully some of that helps you in your decision.

As you would expect, typical History Channel stuff. I do think thought that the Coast Gaurd one was very informative adds a lot of value to the set. Great gift for the military buff on your gift list.
