Necessary for all to read, especially those among us who are the first ones to jump to support the Government when we are about to invade another country or start another war. All books are biased, this one too but it is widely documented and backup by reliable sources, just follow the footnotes.

Disappointing. Mostly opinion. Does not support opinion with fact. Shows you lots of pictures, though.

Exceptional. Over the years, through my own study, I've come to know quite a bit of the great historical information contained in this set, but I've never come across such a comprehensive single source. It's well researched and factual, unlike much of what we hear and read about history. If you get most of your news from TV and don't read very extensively about history from reputable historians, you'll likely watch this with considerable disbelief. Propaganda abounds in much of what is written and reported about events in our history, so it really takes some serious digging, skepticism, and logic, to come to the truth of things. If you were to only ever watch one historical documentary, it should be this one. (The only negative comment I have is about a brief section of the film that demonizes private gun ownership. It's wishful thinking to believe that guns aren't required to defend yourself, family, and property, especially given how extensively the film outlines the rampant worldwide theft of resources, and human rights violations. Guns are essential because when it comes down to it, you're the only one who cares about you and your family.)
