From Academy Award®-winning writer/director Oliver Stone, this ten-part documentary series looks back at human events that at the time went under reported, but that crucially shaped America's unique and complex history over the 20th century. From the atomic bombing of Japan to the Cold War and the fall of Communism, this in-depth, surprising, and totally riveting series demands to be watched again and again

  • Incomplete series

    By Netscorer
    Blu-ray version of this documentary contains two bonus episodes, dealing with first part of the 20th century, as well as detailed interview with Oliver Stone and historians, discussing approach to the series. All these are essential to properly understanding the context of the documentary and they are missing from this digital presentation.
  • Great Footage - Can’t Trust the Numbers

    By Chattanooga SnoCone
    Stone has clearly created a biased documentary full of hypothetical what-ifs. The information and insight does make you think, but have some resources available to verify if you decide to watch. He has a clear affection towards Stalin and negatively critics anyone in history with an America First thought process. The documentary contains some amazing imagery and scenarios that I did not know about (where the two stars come from).
  • facts and some opinions

    You will learn more US history in this then you learned in all your us history classes combine
  • Warning: This is Stone's biased opinion not history

    By Marvel 97
    Don't be fooled, this is not good history - good historians fight tooth and nail against the politicization of history. Oliver Stone would have better served himself and the public by titleing the series - "United States Untold history ACCORDING to Oliver Stone.". This is more on the side of propagandist history than objective history. Sad... since some of it is well presented.
  • Twisted view of history and antisemitic

    By saturday night movie lovers
    Sorry to tell you: but he is obviously trying to change the whole point of view and make Russia the good guy and America the bad guy. And the Jews and Israel the very very bad ones! So Stone is an hypocrite antisemite who lacks in knowledge to become a good history teacher. Many countries have made atrocities and bad decisions, so if you want to truly learn history, without his bias, read a book about ww2 and the Cold War. Don't watch this. I regret I bought the tv show.
  • Ignores USSR Atrocities & Poltical manipulation

    By Bullwinkle888
    Mr Stone presents the US as a hostile, duplicitous aggressor. Whilst the Soviet union as a fair minded power which was constantly being unfairly deceived by the the US. It's a complete fantasy view that is more Mr Stones delusional vision of communism. Communism was a complete and total failure as a sytem of government and was only maintained by a Police state. Stalin was the greatest murderer in history, mostly of his own people. People should consider what a world dominated by Russia & China would look like. The US has had it's fair share of failures and acts of violence to innocents, however the overall thrust has always been for countries with democracy and personal individual freedoms.
  • Bias, Bias, and More Bias

    By MartyMcFly
    Don't watch this if you're looking for simple facts without bias. You won't find it here. This is merely a platform for Stone to espouse is own personal ideology. Yes, he reveals some of the whitewashed half-truths that have been sold to the American public. But in the end this series is a vehicle for Stone to attempt to lay all the wrongs and atrocities committed by our country at the feet of conservatives alone. Just the opening line of episode 8 was enough to make my stomach turn. Therein he attributes the failure of Vietnam to conservatives when in earlier episodes he clearly explains that the beginning and escalation of the Vietnam conflict happened under JFK and LBJ, both Democrats, long before Nixon took the reigns. The most turbulent and divided our nation had been since the Civil War (the 60's) was while it was led by Democrats, Mr. Stone. Never forget that. I regret that I ever bothered to watch this.
  • Love the series so far

    By Olive N. Jon
    Would not have bought it if I knew I couldn't chromecast it.
  • Must have/must see

    By Detroit Red Wings Fan!
    Some people think this is extremely "bias." Far from true. Every episode is very factual. It's time for people to take their blinders off. This show, and the book is a must have for everyone that loves history. Especially for the younger generation. I didn't think twice about buying this whole series. For anyone who has interest in politics and history of our government. Buy this, rent it, just watch it.
  • This is what they should be teaching in EVERY school

    By TerryTunstul
    This series is amazing and it tells the truth about how America is covering up all their corrupt evil ways. It opened my eyes to so much and this whole show could be another movement to change the world. Scary but effective
