Editorial Reviews

Nearly a century and half have passed since Lee surrendered at Appomattox, but the words and images created during the Civil War still bring home the impact of the bloodiest conflict seen on American shores. Now, HISTORY reveals the lesser known aspects of the civil war in 9 compelling documentaries: Tales of the Gun: Guns of the Civil War, The Lost Battle of the Civil War, The Most Daring Mission of the Civil War, April 1865, Battlefield Detectives: The Civil War: Antietam, Battlefield Detectives: The Civil War: Gettysburg, Battlefield Detectives: The Civil War: Shiloh, Secret Missions of the Civil War, and Eighty Acres of Hell.

This collection of programs from the History Channel is a treasure trove of information on little known or previously forgotten incidents of the Civil War. At first I thought, "How could I have missed this series?", then discovered that the set is a compilation of previously aired programs that are informative, as well as entertaining. I have recommended this set to several people, and each one of them has reported that they are glad they have been informed about these little "jewels".

"Secrets of the Civil War" is a four-disc set containing an in-depth look at significant, but not well-known, battles of the war, from Antietam to Shiloh to Gettysburg. Archival letters, original diary entries, cinematic reenactments and interviews with noted historians bring events that occurred over 140 years ago to vivid life. We learn that in the cavalry charge at Mine Creek, Kansas, it took only 30 minutes for 2,800 Union troops to defeat an enemy force more than double in size. Also covered is a Confederate raid on Vermont and an attempt by Union coal miners to blow up a Southern fort by tunneling underneath it. Nine separate programs from the History Channel are included.

I don't think the HISTORY CHANNEL has ever produced a bad documentary.
This series of investigations of quirky events in the US Civil War is really engrossing... and I'm an Aussie. At times a little over-re-enacted and repetitive, it nevertheless is engaging story-telling. Unfortunately only available in Region 1 mode (why do they do this? - there's a whole world market out there you US centric media people). However, if you have a program such as ANYDVD, it will crack the coding and make it easy to copy the disc to make it playable on any DVD in the world.

As I have said in other reviews most books about the Civil War are about the well known battles/generals, etc. This gives us knowledge of secrets going on behind the battles, movement of troops, etc. It is amazing how much was happening that the general population knew nothing about.

Another Christmas gift for Hubby who's into the Civil War. I don't always see this value but this is what makes him happy so this is what I'll do and this time I even watch the DVD with him and I'm surprised at some of the stuff I didn't know before that was in this DVD. I'll keep looking for little gems for Hubby like this one.

This DVD is recommendable for anyone intrested in history or into the Civil War studies. It is well narrated and well done documentary. It shows some events not learned in the college classroom. So it is a must for the collection to have this DVD for the intellectual enrichment.
