The American Civil War (DVD)
The award-winning documentary series on the epic event in American history
The American Civil War defined the modern American nation. It was a war where brother fought brother and families were torn apart over their loyalties.
The generals of the Civil War Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee are legends of military history and this six hour series details the major turning points and battles of the war.
Although the majority of the 600,000 fatalities were due to disease, the war was one of the bloodiest in American history as generals struggled to adapt the old methods of waging war to the new weapons available.
With the aid of historical accounts, reconstructions and expert analysis, this is one of the defining programmes on the American Civil War.
