An informative and engaging series...
11 June 2006 | by See all my reviews

I would never have sought out a show on British military history but, when it was shown on my local PBS station, I found myself watching my way through the series! Father and son presenters Peter and Dan Snow are fun to watch as they experience various situations such as carrying pikes for miles, slashing melons on motorbikes, and scouting out bogs for battlefields. Though the CG animations of troop movements can seem cheesy at times (and may have caused a double-take at first), the inclusion of modern computerized elements makes the overall presentation distinctive. The inclusion on confessional-style accounts from actors in period costume enhances personal interest. The rapport between the presenters lends itself to smooth transitions as the various elements are discussed. In one afternoon I learned a lot about battles that I, as an American student, had either been unfamiliar or completely ignorant of. The presentation created a sense of authority and I feel as if it was a very informative-I highly recommend this series to anyone who has an interest in military histories. Don't forget, it truly is a fun series as well!
