One of the better History dokumentation since they are using original footage and eye witness accounts instead of re-enactment.
Personally I don't like the use of re-colored b/W material or the orange gun muzzle flashes in some of the b/w films. Those are historical documents that should not be tampered with. Therefore I rate it at 6 rather than 7.
