This anthology was produced by the History Channel. It's description of Decisive Battles using digital figures is confusing, repetitive and missing a lot of relevant facts. The biographies of Julius Caesar, Caligula and Constantine dwell more on the sensational side and again are superficial missing a lot of relevant facts that would make the events more understandable. Constantine appears to have been vetted by the Christian Church and presents stories told by Eusebius, a bishop who hadn't met the Emperor until 325 AD, as fact. A number of statements made in the series are completely incorrect. This series is history light made for TV and should not be considered an authoritative source of information.
