Ken Burns

Ken Burns' The American Civil War is the most ambitious, comprehensive and definitive account of the bloody conflict ever produced. This epic work - hailed around the world as one of the greatest documentary series ever made - took Academy Award-nominated director Ken Burns five years to produce. It features over 16,000 archival photographs and innumerable period paintings, lithographs and contemporary newspaper features, as well as battlefield tours, newsreel footage of veterans and music from the period.

Graphic first hand accounts of the war are brought to life with readings by top actors and actresses including Jason Robards, Morgan Freeman. Derek Jacobi, Jeremy Irons, Sam Waterson, Julie Harris, Arthur Miller and many more. Digitally mastered for exceptional picture and sound quality, this deluxe DVD edition includes all eleven hours of the series.

Dec 16: The 2009 re-release (of which this is one) was issued without the booklet that was part of the original release (2002). So this like the others will come without the booklet. You have to check with individual sellers to see if the edition does contain the booklet. It is the original, 2002, release that has the booklet. Ask any seller selling it to check on the back whether it has the date '2002' or '2009'. If it has 2002 then it should have the booklet.


RECOMMENDED READING: Mathew Brady's Illustrated History of the Civil War

Price: 40.00 (UK Sterling) (UK Postage Inclusive)

The old fashioned ways of paying are a bit more of a hassle for you but mean I can offer this item for the lowest price I possibly can. Card payments are very expensive so I prefer the old fashioned methods of payment. And let's face it, the good old fashioned cheque - well nothing is more secure than that.
