All U.S. military engagements during the period of 1700-2004. The French, English, Spanish, and Native Americans vied for control on the North American continent beginning in the 1700's. The Americans had to become self-reliant on themselves as their mother country wasn't going to help them. In the process, America became a world power of her own. The American will to protect themselves, their land, freedoms, and any infringement upon them and even their families, drove Americans to excel in all areas of endeavor. Written by

I'm a layman, and I only have a passing interest in the subject of war, but this series was made for people just like me. Even with my limited knowledge in war, I realized this was U.S. Wars 101. Or U.S. Wars Lite.
It's very difficult in covering ALL of WWII in 20 minutes, or Viet Nam in 15 minutes, but this particular documentary was made for people who don't have an appreciation of war, but honor those who have fought & fallen for our flag.
One funny note: At the end of every episode, they tell you, you can get all 8 episodes of "The Complete History of the U.S. Wars" on a 4 DVD set for 80 bucks! I found all 8 episodes on one DVD at my local Big Lots, for 3 dollars. It's called "The American Soldier". Score it. Unless you're a "war buff", you will learn something you didn't know before.
