3.0 out of 5 stars Medal Of Honor, Valor, Gallantry, Devotion... May 4, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Amazon Verified Purchase
This just arrived yesterday, and I must admit, I ordered it with some misgivings. I have seen some of the men awarded this Medal on The Military Channel, and most do not think that they were heroes at all. They were simply doing their job when extraordinary circumstances put them in a position that called for sacrifice -- not something you spend time thinking about! This particular documentary is divided into 6 parts: Civil War, World War One, World War II Europe, World War II Pacific, Korea and Vietnam. At the conclusion of the Vietnam segment there is the inclusion of recipients from the Somalia, Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts as well. This documentary appears to be very up to date (2012) and covers the awards presented by President Obama. There are some speeches made at these presentations by former Presidents Lyndon B. Johnson and George W. Bush, as well as by President Obama. Otherwise this film is centered on the backgrounds of the conflicts/wars, giving us an idea of what brought men to these terrible venues.
There is a great deal of stock photos and footage, with a progression of technical achievements that allows better realism. There are also many scenes done by "re-enacters", from the Civil War up to and including Vietnam. These are supplemented by footage pertinent to the era. I have to register one complaint, and that is the sound of the narrator. Oddly compressed for an HD recording, the lack of dynamics also lulls one to doze during certain stretches. Also, one must sit through the introduction to each portion of the film. This may have been due to showing it in other venues as a series of films instead of one lengthy piece. Once again, the last bits of the film fare better, but that hardly makes up for almost 3 hours of mediocre sound and continual intros.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great care was taken to be accurate... March 29, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
There was a clear and consistent effort to be as accurate and authentic as possible in the creation of this DVD series. The historical recreations are intense, layered and detailed with great care in the special effects and historical truth and authenticity along with the powerful voice of narrator Coby Batty and other voice actors help to bring these stories of the Medal of Honor to life for a mass audience - from the Civil War to the War in Afghanistan.

This is a very good DVD. It brings the true meaning of the Medal of Honor to life. Most people think you just win it. You are awarded the Medal of Honor, you don't win it. There is so much meaning behind the medal. Just think of all the men and women who did not receive this medal. They also deserve our admiration and thanks. To all my military all over the world - I SALUTE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars OUR CELEBRATED HEROES September 2, 2013
Format:DVD
3474 men and women received the country's highest military honor, and their stories are remarkable and representative of our brave souls. The series covers battles from the Civil War right up to present times. The medal is "awarded for conspicuous gallantry at the risk of his or her life above and beyond the call of duty while engaged in an action against an enemy of the USA." As the act has to be witnessed by two people, I often wonder how many medals are never awarded, like when a whole unit is wiped out, e.g. Custer's Last Stand. It is 4 hours of courage on two discs - be glad that we have strong people who step forward.

5.0 out of 5 stars True heroes March 17, 2013
Format:DVD|Amazon Verified Purchase
I bought this one because i want to know all about the american armed forces. And it is great to see what a man can do for his beliefs, and his country, when he follows the call of duty.
The dvd is well produced and gives a lot of information.

This documentary is for everyone to remember that there are true heroes in this world.
