| Best series I have ever seen
This is a terrific series for anyone who is into history or English wars. Words cannot describe how good this is. My VHS tapes of this are old and ready to fall apart, (and they aren't even complete) but I still watch it every year or so.

Also a great series for a history teacher.

Unfortunately, it has not been available, but I believe that Acorn is releasing it near the end of the year.

Watch for it, folks.....for anyone who loves history, it will be worth the wait.

If you loved Poldark, etc, this will be a great addition to your collection.
