The Conquerors, a three-DVD set by The History Channel, introduces viewers to twelve military commanders who left their mark on various battlefields in Europe, the Americas, and the Middle East. Unfortunately, the authors of the series did not bother to select any outstanding military commanders who did not hail from the Judeo-Christian world. Think for instance about Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses II, also known as Ramses The Great, Emperor Qin Shihuang, the founder of what is today’s China, or Ottoman Sultan Suleiman I, also known as Suleiman the Magnificent. The Conquerors sometimes looks like a PowerPoint presentation. Each episode starts with a very fast overview that goes above the heads of viewers who are not previously familiar with the material, i.e., 1) Situation, 2) Mission, 3) Execution, ) Administration, and 5) Command & Control. Viewers are given tips for conquerors in a “PowerPoint” format close to the end of each episode. To his credit, Captain Dale Dye injects his expertise in military history and weaponry to give life to the twelve military commanders, their time, and the environment existing around them. Unfortunately, the computer-generated imagery used in some episodes looks stale and does not seem to be state-of-the-art. To summarize, The Conquerors is a series of unequal quality that does not do enough justice to the most renowned warriors in history.
