Product Description

Brought to you by the award-winning production company Centre Communications, this series is truly one of a kind and is sure to satisfy history buffs and documentary enthusiasts. This DVD set also includes bonus features containing biographies, timelines, rare photographs and maps!The year 1540 was a crucial turning point in American history. The Great Indian Wars were incited by Francisco Vazquez de Coronado when his expedition to the Great Plains launched the inevitable 350-year struggle between the white man and the American Indians. From that point forward, the series of battles between the military and civilian forces of the United States and the native American Indians began when blood was shed and ultimately tens of thousands of lives were lost on both sides. The Battle of Tippicanoe, the Battle of Horseshoe Band, all three Seminole Wars and the Battle of Little Big Horn were some of the most important conflicts that led up to the last massacre, the Battle of Wounded Knee, where America's landscape would be forever changed!Chapters:1.

I purchased this as it was on sale for $5, and more than worth that price. The five episode trace the white/aboriginal conflicts from 1600 forward, though mostly only when 'Americans' were involved. It focuses on the major players on both sides, and generally present a neutral view on the happenings. It's a good way to spend 4 hours, and though the visuals are repetitive, the story told is good. I'm not sure how they completely missed Chief Joseph, however.

A five hours documentary on one DVD! A very good introduction to the subject. There is some lack of historic accuracy but the Producer has to choose what to say and not let the audience be lost in détails. I certainly highly recommend it!

This was a very well documented movie about the great Indian war. It teaches us a lesson on how to get along with the Native North American first nations.
