The French and Indian War pitted French forces for almost a decade against the British, yet few Americans realize its historic contribution to the revolutionary fervor which swept the continent in 1776. Actor Graham Greene, an Oneida Indian whose ancestors fought in the war, narrates this gripping four-part documentary series. Episodes include "A Country Between," "Unlikely Allies," "Turning the Tide," and "Unintended Consequences."

an informative look

Comments about PBS The War That Made America DVD 2PK:

This series is an interesting and thorough treatment of an oft overlooked period in colonial American history. The basic premise is that the French & Indian war (or the 7 years war) was really a series of events that steered the 13 colonies toward the American Revolution and thus launched the nation of The United States. As such, it is presented in a clear and convincing format of narritive over scenes created by period reenactors. While I generally am unimpressed by reenacting, this crew is very well assembled and decked out.
In closing, if you would like to know more about this era of our history, this is an excellent overview to start with. I'm glad it's in my library and am sure that I will be able to enjoy repeated viewings

A powerful and well made case

By Yankee Peregrene

Comments about PBS The War That Made America DVD 2PK:

A compelling and brilliantly executed document of North American colonial history. The use of historical sites as locations for shooting and Graham Greene's almost "You Are There" summation of important events were major contributions to this program's success. A wonderful aide to education as well as a satisfying survey of this little known, but central, historical period.
