As a follow up to Chatreechalerm Yukol's THE LEGEND OF SURIYOTHAI, KINGDOM OF WAR is an epic historical action film about King Naresuan the Great, who liberated the Siamese from the control of Burma, changing the destiny of a nation. Part 1 introduces Naresuan as a child prince captured by the Burmese King Bayinnaung in order to keep the province of Ayudhya subservient. Naresuan spends almost seven years away from home studying as a novice Buddhist monk. Part 2 depicts Naresuan's life as the heir-presumptive to Ayudhya. Over the next decade, he matures in military capability and gains an enemy in Bayinnaung's successor, Nandabayin. Nandabayin orders Naresuan on an ambushed mission, for which Naresuan discovers and retaliates by strengthening Ayudhya's borders. Soon after being crowned king, the Burmese resume attacks, but it is Naresuan who reigns victor and turns the tables of war for the first time in 30 years.

This item brings 'Kingdom of War: Part I & Part II' to Blu-ray on two separate BD-50 discs housed together in a standard case. The discs each contain one of the films with their own selection of supplements.
Kingdom at War is known in Thailand as King Naresuan: Episodes 1 through 4 of which we have Episodes 1 and 2 on this Blu-ray DVD. King Naresuan The Great is one of the great kings of Siam and this series is the story of his life and all the good he did for his people and the Kingdom. I bought Episodes 1 through 4 from ethaicd.com in Bangkok but they do not come with English subtitles, even though the movie is shown in Thai theaters with them. Have seen Episodes 1 and 2 in Thai movie houses and love them and now nice to be able to watch in my home here.
On one of my trips to Thailand I went to the back lot, movie set, where Episode 1 of the movie was shot, outside of Kanchanaburi, and saw the actual site where it was made and explored the whole area and looked at the props which were used and interacted with some of the elephants who took part in the movie. This was a most interesting trip.
In conclusion, I would urge you to take some time and learn about the history of Siam and her people.
