    Great American History Series!

    George Kennedy narrates this 8-part series covering the period 1700 through the present day, and provides a concise overview of America's wars arranged in chronological order. There is a informative narration, re-enactments, historical footage and extras. Extras include downloadable timelines, maps and a historical document. I would recommend this for teachers or students of American history and history buffs of all ages. My 13 year old watched the film and seeing history visually gave him a better feel for American History. We highly recommend it!
