Editorial Reviews

Incisive, fascinating and dramatic, days that shook the world brings to life truly seismic moments in modern history. These are the events that changed the way we view the world. From the tragedies of history to the triumphs of scientific development, this series spans centuries and continents with one common thread: On each of these days, the lives of millions were changed forever. Incredible breakthroughs, acts of shocking brutality, and stories of hope form the themes of these compelling programs. Moments such as the liberation of Nelson Mandela, the assassination of Martin Luther King, the moon landings, the attack on Pearl Harbor, the first nuclear reaction, and the fall of the Berlin wall, are examined through dramatic reconstruction, eye-witness accounts and archive footage, bringing them alive for young and old to relive or to discover for the first time.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for history buffs. February 27, 2012
This DVD set is amazing. They reenact all of the stories with great detail and accuracy. My favorite was the story on Hiroshima. It was gripping and made me feel like I was part of the experience that took place. This set will make a great addition to anyone's collection. Two thumbs up!

1.0 out of 5 stars Where is it? May 12, 2011
I have seen the show a few times and decided to check for the dvd. I found the complete series for just $31. I ordered it two months ago and it still hasnt arrived. I never recieved anything from Amazon except an email saying if it doesnt ship by a certain date the order will be cancelled. I didnt understand until I checked on it today. I apparently bought it when the price was misquoted. I bought it for $31 when it was supposed to be $131. I find it funny that Amazon is being so selfish over $100. They really lost alot more as in a customer with many future purchases.
