Our Take:

Well I have to say I am impressed with the price of this boxed set, under $30 for 10 DVD’s is an amazing price. I am a bit of a Civil War buff, and I love reading about and visiting historical sites that have to do with the Civil War, just this past summer I was fortunate to be able to visit Gettysburg and really get into the civil war from many aspects. So I was very excited to be able to check out these great dvd’s. The collection is a great timeline of the entire war. Each dvd is filled with an amazing amount of facts and photos. It is fascinating, and I just no not envy these solders, the tough conditions of this was were especially hard. But the dvd’s are very easy to watch and I enjoyed seeing them with my husband. And my daughter is just starting to learn about the Civil War in school, so these dvds will be great for her to watch soon.

Our Take:

As you can all guess I am a WWII history buff as well. Yes we took the trek down to New Orleans to visit the National WWII museum… twice! This dvd follows the war well, and it keeps your attention. It is entertaining and never boring. I loved seeing the never before seen footage, I have seen my share of war documentaries and I never did see this footage. Sometimes it is hard to watch, but war is hell, that that is the truth. After watching this dvd set, I can only hope that there is never a WW3. I was very impressed with this dvd set, and I am sure I will watch it again and again in the future.

So if you have a military or history buff as a valentine this year any of these affordable dvd sets would make a great Valentine gift for that special someone. Some of the new releases retail for only $9.98, so affordable that you could pick up more than one for those special someone’s in your life.
