4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining and Informative Show August 4, 2009
By C. Noah
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Show February 6, 2010
Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Warriors RULE! November 5, 2009
Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun, and soldier\warrior insight. September 27, 2009
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Host and Show November 3, 2013
Verified Purchase
This is a great show with an even greater host. Terry does an excellent job showing all the weapons and tactics used, but he also focuses on the specific warrior culture of each group of people. It's great seeing someone so respectful and knowledgeable like Terry Schappert representing America.
