The Complete History of US Wars 1700-2004 Documentary Series Overview (2004)


A documentary series featuring all the US military engagements during the period of 1700-2004.


War has always been part of the American experience. From the time the first colonists set foot upon North America’s shores, they were in conflict with the Native inhabitants. One hundred years later the colonies suddenly found themselves an extension of the conflicts in Europe. Less than a century later, the Revolutionary War freed the fledgling United States from its British overlords and European entanglements. Born and nurtured in war, America grew in strength and power until at the beginning of the 21st century it was the foremost military power in the world.
