Editorial Reviews

WEAPONS THAT CHANGED WAR storms the Bastille of history, revealing the changing composition of the warrior's toolbox, from the sticks and stone age to our own technological terrordome. Whether on land, at sea, or (most recently) in the air human beings have shown remarkable initiative in developing an evergrowing assortment of hardcore hardware.
In many ways, wars are won in the workshop. Of course, military leaders have to learn how to make the best use of weapons like catapults, Greek Fire (incendiary missiles pioneered by the Byzantine navy during the 7th century AD), dreadnoughts, U-Boats, and A-Bombs but obtaining access to these things can be more than half the battle. This series tells a story of lethal one-upmanship driven by the universal human desire to have the last word Surrender.

Ditto to Mr. Mike Brolin's review. Very nice packaging sells this DVD. There is some interesting footage in some of the segments, but overall this is a waste of time for anyone who is a a student of weaponry or of history. The greater shame is that laymen would watch this and think they are seeing a factual presentation. Mr. Brolin did justice to the segemnt on AK's (I agree, it was terrible). The segment on Flintlocks was possibly worse. The same sequence of the Rev War soldier shooting from behind a tree was used repeatedly and, 1)it was used to illustrate rifle fire and he was firing a smoothbore musket, not a rifle, and 2) the reloading sequence was incorrect. Nearly the entire segment on rifles was taken up by the breechloading mechanisms which were an anomaly and had virually no impact on the age of the flintlock. This is consistent with the entire documentary; footage that is unrelated or irrelevant to the topic of that particular "act". Finally, the photo illustration of the Kentucky rifle appeared to be of those toy rifles. It was a caplock and had the two brass bands around the barrel. I screamed when I saw it. (BTW, Ky rifles were termed that because so many of them, made elswhere, found their way into Kentucky; their use made famous by noteable Kentuckians). As the viewer slogs through the DVD's in this set, footage is used over and over and narration is filled with jargon that has no illustration to back it up. Very unfortunate that this grade of product even comes to market, let alone that dunderheads like me spend their hard earned cash on it.

I bought this because i like other Madacy Entertainment Sets. First things First, The Packaging for this set was nice and neat. I have watched ALL of the documentaries and most of them are Sub-Par.
I Watched the piece on the AK-47 and there was only 1 Clip of an AK-47! 1 clip in the whole 10 minute Documentary!
Almost all of the documentaries are Badly edited, It would be nice if they actually interviewed Experts and had 3-D models of the Weapons Mechanisms But none of the Documentaries did... Besides that the Doc on the m-1 was good but all-in-all i would have to say that this is definetly not worth the money!
