Just the Original 2-Hour Special, NOT the 10-Part Series
on July 23, 2011
I just wanted to clear up some confusion that is apparent from other reviews. This DVD is ONLY the original 2-hour special, which first aired on April 2010. This DVD does NOT include the 10-part series which aired from May 2011 - July 2011.
As far as I can tell, the 10-part series is not available here on Amazon nor at the History Channel website store, but see Ellen Goodman's comment below about it being available at Video On Demand.
Although this is a very interesting show, it has many factual errors, probably because the book that it is based on is full of errors. You might want to read through the reviews here of the book that the series is based on (same title). That doesn't mean we can't enjoy and learn from the show (or the book), but we should be very cautious about believing everything we think we "learn" from the show (or the book). Popular history is full of interesting "events" that never actually happened.
