Swords against elephants, shields and spears against BULLETS!!! The host enthusiastically, and precisely explains the methods and motivations behind every soldier\warriors ability to overcome the odds. He also genuinely seems a kindred spirit to the grunts who carried out the historical carnage. Cheesy? I must admit the Zulu nation episode, which explained how these brave, dangerous men withstood and defeated an all-out British high-powered rifle invasion with only shields and spears. I must admit I was cheesin', 'cause it was the coolest story I've ever heard! Politics, diplomacy, and treaty knowledge do not apply to any of these stories. Warriors fight, and the host respectfully shows you how.

I watched every episode of this season. It is entertaining and can be used for educational purposes. As host, Terry's quirky demeanor helps bring a certain endearing and down-to-earth feeling to the show even if he does get a bit repetitive and 'cheesy' at times (I counted no less than eleven times he used the word 'awesome' during one of the episodes). It is much better than a boring narrator that typically dominates historical productions. Furthermore, the experts used to get to the truth of these warrior cultures definitely know their stuff. Overall, I recommend this series and look forward to another season when/if they get around to it.

I love this show so much. Terry is a great host, and the writing does a good job of condensing complex historical groups into short episodes without the degree of gross simplification and factual errors that occur in similar series. It's obvious that the makers of the show and Mr. Schappert have a great passion for history, and a huge amount of respect for the experts and historians that they meet. I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoys military history and would enjoy a fun series that could introduce them to some stuff they may never have seen before.

Terry Schappert is obviously a REAL GUY with a REAL backgound in this stuff. He isn't an analyst or a historian. He has lived it. His sense of fun and adventure makes this History Channel series a keeper. Bought one for my Dad for Christmas after we had seen the series on tv. We had a wonderful time watching Terry experience the cultures of the warriors right along with us.

SUPREME SET-BUT MISSINGThis series is absolutely the quintessential insight into many of the world's Warrior Patriots and their many cultural aspects of warfare, weapons and training. . .truly astounding, and fascinating to see! ! ! The primary reason that I'm NOT giving this collection a perfect 5 Star rating, is, no matter how much the History Channel huffs, puffs and swears on a stack of Bibles. . .this series is absolutely not complete!
The very first Episode to air was--" Warriors: The Heart Of A SCOTTISH Warrior " { or, " Warriors: BRAVEHEART " }. The HC also gives a very weak and non-convincing explanation of exclusive British copywrite domain; ' bull-pucky '. I contacted Mr. Shappert personally. He told me that he was saddened by those in charge at the HC, of not wanting to include this Awsome program, that he had a falling out of sorts [ which probably explains why there were no subsequent Seasons ]. To us, as lovers of these stunningly produced programs, we ultimately are the losers!
Anyway, we still have these episodes. . .and this Equisite missing program, ' MAY ' be found on an internet download if you're LUCKY!

This show was canceled way before it's time. Terry Schappert delivered a level of enthusiasm to the history of the ten warrior societies in this DVD set unparalleled by anything on television today. Every episode is packed full of astounding historical details, and every one of them had at least one golden nugget information you won't get anywhere else but here. I can't praise this series highly enough. Schappert includes a plethora of information ranging from the men who forged history, to the soldiers under their command, to the weapons and equipment they used and innovated, to battlefields on which they fought, right down to their very motives and why they lived the way they did. Do yourself a great service and buy this DVD set.

Now if only the History Channel would release Peter Woodward's "Conquest" series on DVD too.

I taught a class on weapons and armor for an Integrated Projects Week at school and I used this series to show my point better. He goes through the history of the warriors and the weapons/armor/tactics/etc and back to the history. He switches it up when necessary and it flows so effectively. I was enthralled by the series and if there's a season 2, I will be buying it.
