    Decisive Battles Series at Times Too Robotic for Its Own Good

    The History Channel combines actor Matthew Settle, well-known historians, decent location footage . and clunky computer-generated imagery to reenact and explain the decisive impact of thirteen battles on the history of the Ancient World. Most computer-generated soldiers and officers look alike and operate like "robots" on the recreated battlefields. To its credit, "Decisive Battles of the Ancient World" shows with success that learning about both history and geography does not need to be "boring."
