North & South: Both Sides are Winners

By Dr Ruth

from Rochester, MN

Verified Reviewer

Comments about PBS The Civil War DVD 5PK:

In this masterful, nuanced and evocative history of America's defining conflict, Ken Burns and his team have woven the photography of the mid 19th century with diaries, letters, outstanding commentary and pitch-perfect voices to give life to the war that tore this country apart. Employing thoughtful, provocative & sympathetic commentators, both North & South, one understands more profoundly what motivated the side with which one does not side. Shelby Foote does this brilliantly for the South. The soundtrack is beautiful, and the haunting Ashoken Farewell evokes the profound sorrow of a war waged within the American family.

Comments about PBS The Civil War DVD 5PK:

Ken Burns does on film with the Civil War what Shelby Foote does with his writing. Makes you feel like "you are there".

Timeless Essential

By Lady Susan

from Oklahoma City, OK

Verified Reviewer

Comments about PBS The Civil War DVD 5PK:

I purchased this as a last-minute Christmas gift for my husband. We thoroughly enjoyed the original airing of Ken Burns' Civil War, and it is thrilling to now be sharing it with our teen son who is studying Civil War in his AP US History class. This is a splendid comprehensive assemblage of the period's history, politics, and rare personal-interest anecdotes. I would highly recommend this set, as well as the companion soundtrack.
