    Excellent DVD-Important American History

    As an American history buff, I thought I knew enough about the War of 1812, but after watching 'First Invasion: The War of 1812' on the History Channel, I found out I didn't really know nearly as much as I should. What an amazing and pivotal moment in our nation's history! I never really knew what an incredible victory the Battle of New Orleans was, and how such a 'ragtag' group of Americans defeated the greatest army in the world so handily! Sadly, the war has been all but forgotten by today's generation, but this excellent DVD does a great job of bringing one of our country's most critical moments to life. Not only is the excellent History Channel documentary in this set, but also several other programs related to the War of 1812. I particularly enjoyed the biography of Andrew Jackson and the episode of 'Extreme History' with Roger Daltrey. I highly recommend this DVD to everyone. We must never forget the War of 1812!

    A reviewer

    Despite what some might say. The United States DID win the War of 1812! While the Americans might have lost most of the land battles, and suffered the capture and burning of its capital at the hands of the enemy. The outcome of a war isn't like the world series by how many battles you win, but who wins the last battle. In this case, that was the Battle of New Orleans, where Gen. Andrew Jackson crushed the British in one of history's most lopsided victories. Also, arguments about the war and its last battle could have been prevented if only there had been a transatlantic cable are absurd as the technology just didn't exist, along with the arrogance of the British Empire diected towards the United States and its integrity as a nation, and the growing outrage of Americans. The supplements, the Battle of New Orleans from the Frontier Battles series, and Biography of Andrew Jackson are great, despite the ramblings of some misinformed and addle brained "historians."

    Pure American Propaganda

    For all my affection for the US, how can such rubbish be passed off as fact? How can the loss of almost every battle, a total naval blockade, the capital captured and burnt, the loss of territory and New England threatening to secede be a victory? The only good thing to come out of the war was British forces freeing sleeves and taking them away to a better life.

    The War of 1812

    I have always enjoyed history about all aspects of my family history. This set of DVDs makes that particular era vivid instead of just dry facts. Although I do not know every detail of the war, it seems factual enough for my purposes. Thumbs up, as far as I'm concerned.

    Less for More Sometimes Better than More for Less

    The War of 1812, a two-DVD set by The History Channel, is overall a disappointment. The bonus program called “Behind The Scenes of First Invasion: The War of 1812” in Volume I does not add anything significant to the satisfactory narration of “First Invasion: The War of 1812.” Most viewers probably do not have too much interest in knowing how The History Channel produces “First Invasion: The War of 1812.” The bonus program looks like a filler. Volume II contains a program about “The Ironclads” that pertains to the Civil War, not to the War of 1812. Finally, the same volume contains another bonus program called “Surviving an 1812 Battleship” that is at best of marginal value. To summarize, The War of 1812 can best be forgotten due to its lack of value to history lovers.
