The Bloodiest Battle

 

 

Gettysburg

 

Three days in the summer of 1863, at a place called Gettysburg. Although it received a theatrical release, this four-hour depiction of the bloody Civil War battle was shot as a made-for-television film. But no taint of cheapness or shortcuts should stick to this magnificent picture. Based on Michael Shaara's book The Killer Angels, this film takes a refreshingly slow, thorough approach to the intricacies of battle. In ordinary circumstances, those intricacies might seem of importance only to fans of military strategy or Civil War enthusiasts, yet in Gettysburg they come across as the very stuff of life, death, and unexpected heroism.

 

 

The Korean Conflict

 

 

The Korean War: 

Our Time In Hell

 

This two-tape boxed set, subtitled Our Time in Hell, provides an excellent chronology of the conflict in Korea. Produced by Discovery Channel, it makes good use of interviews with Korean War veterans from both sides of the fighting, as well as extensive use of archival footage. Rare film shot early in the conflict, in 1950, by a crew from NBC News, provides vivid testimony about the ferocity of the fighting. The video offers a very solid history of the conflict (the late historian Clay Blair, an expert on the Korean War, served as a historical consultant for the video production) and is particularly strong at providing a lucid account of how the tide of battle repeatedly surged back and forth between the Communist and United Nations forces during the first year of the war.

Shocking  New Revelations

 

 

Nazis-Warning From History

 

A BBC series originally brought to American audiences by the History Channel. It may sound unlikely, but chances are viewers will feel they are hearing the story of Adolf Hitler and the rise of the Nazi party for the first time. There's a reason for that: a considerable amount of information and film footage incorporated into the program is relatively new and unknown to the general public, much of it discovered in the former East Germany and other one-time Soviet bloc nations. These include striking color images of jack-booted Nazi troopers parading in Berlin, Hitler arriving at a conference, and street scenes that give this production an almost shocking immediacy.  VHS Set

 

 

U.S. Army

Film Documentary

 

 

Death Camps

 

This is the official film documentary recorded by the United States Army of the Nazi Death Camps as Allied forces advanced into Germany. Although by then the fires in the Third Reich's crematoria had been reduced to smoldering ash, the remaining evidence was so unspeakably horrible that were it not for this documentary, the mind would refuse it. We are made witness to the half-dead prisoners, victims of "medical" experiments, gas chambers, and open mass graves of the camps whose names have become synonymous with human suffering and degradation. Every film frame of the Death Camps is irrefutable testimony to a lesson the world must never be permitted to forget.

Based On 

The Best-Seller

 

 

Black Hawk Down

 

Ridley Scott's Black Hawk Down conveys the raw, chaotic urgency of ground-force battle in a worst-case scenario. With exacting detail, the film re-creates the American siege of the Somalian city of Mogadishu in October 1993, when a 45-minute mission turned into a 16-hour ordeal of bloody urban warfare. Helicopter-borne U.S. Rangers were assigned to capture key lieutenants of Somali warlord Muhammad Farrah Aidid, but when two Black Hawk choppers were felled by rocket-propelled grenades, the U.S. soldiers were forced to fend for themselves in the battle-torn streets of Mogadishu, attacked from all sides by armed Aidid supporters. Based on author Mark Bowden's bestselling account of the battle, Scott's riveting, action-packed film follows a sharp ensemble cast in some of the most authentic battle sequences ever filmed.

 

 

History of

The Gold Rush

 

 

The Gold Rush

 

First televised in 1998 to mark the 150th anniversary of the beginning of the California gold rush, this excellent, entertaining PBS documentary begins with the 1848 discovery of gold nuggets on the banks of the American River. What follows is nothing less than the birth of the first entrepreneurial movement in the U.S., an era with striking similarities to the economic reinvention of the Information Age.

 

Narrated by John Lithgow, The Gold Rush is an all-American story about dreams and profits in a changing landscape--something with which we can surely identify today. Add this one to your video library.

 

 

 

In Memory of 9/11

On the morning of September 11, 2001, brothers Jules and Gedeon Naudet were working on a documentary about a rookie New York City firefighter. Hearing a roar in the sky, Jules turned his camera upward--just in time to film the only existing image of the first plane crashing into the World Trade Center. In a fateful instant, Jules and Gedeon became eyewitnesses to the most shocking and defining incident of our time.

 

 

Based on the bestseller 

by the late 

Stephen Ambrose

 

Band Of Brothers

 

Based on the bestseller by Stephen E. Ambrose, the epic 10-part miniseries Band of Brothers tells the story of Easy Company, 506th Regiment of the 101st Airborne Division, U.S. Army. Drawn from interviews with survivors of Easy Company, as well as soldiers' journals and letters, Band of Brothers chronicles the experiences of these men who knew extraordinary bravery and extraordinary fear. They were an elite rifle company parachuting into France early on D-Day morning, fighting in the Battle of the Bulge and capturing Hitler's Eagle's Nest at Berchtesgaden. They were also a unit that suffered 150 percent casualties, and whose lives became legend.

 

 

Great Minds of American History

 

 

Great Minds of American History: World War II and the Post War Era

 

Author of bestselling Citizen Soldiers and Undaunted Courage and biographer of Eisenhower and Nixon, Stephen Ambrose has the rare ability to tell the history of the American democracy equally well from the perspective of soldiers in trenches as from Presidents and five-star generals. In World War II and the Post War Era, a program from American Heritage's Great Minds of American History series, Ambrose tells a wealth of first-hand, personal stories--from breakfasting with a President in a diner to a tongue-tied, young Topeka soldier's meeting with Eisenhower.  Ambrose reveals his copious historical scholarship on some of the best-known figures of the last half-century, including Eisenhower, MacArthur, McCarthy, and Nixon. Ambrose is so at home with this period of history that he can make statements such as, "MacArthur lied his way out of every problem he ever got into," and back them up. Viewers should be prepared for an interesting, although disturbing, discussion of trench foot. This video will make a good addition to the history library of novices and World War II buffs alike.
