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.)
