From Academy Award winning writer/director, Oliver Stone, and co-written by historian Prof. Peter Kuznick, this ten-part documentary series looks back at human events that at the time went under reported, but that crucially shaped America's unique and complex history over the 20th Century. From the atomic bombing of Japan to the Cold War and the fall of Communism, this in-depth, surprising and totally riveting series demands to be watched again and again.

Illuminating series. Hour-long episodes, narrated by Stone and mostly using newsreel footage and actual photos.
Covers from WW2 onwards but shows how actions and imperialism in the previous century had great impact on what happened later. The real story of real people, and highlighting the behind-the-scenes political manoeuvres of Soviet, German and Allied leaders.
