I belive that this documentary series is a good way to learn the harsh parts of war in a some what fun to watch way!

This may be not for all audiences, there are some strong themes that are definitley NOT for all ages such as a man getting his leg cut off with a crude bonesaw and a large amount of moaning, screaming, and graphic imagery. There are scenes where men are brutally killed in battles and some references to prostitution and rape. A slave woman gets her breasts felt and there is a scene where a child is taken from his mother. There are scenes in which Native Americans are treated badly.

This is a pretty good way to learn about the US's history, but it is not for kids under the age of 12 or sensitive viewers.

parents let your tweens watch it

We watch it in school.Violence: 11+ it is quite violent and at parts shows dead bodies and alot of blood. also the donnor party scenes can be disturbing because of the discussion of cannibalism though all you see is bones blood and some dead bodies. There are alot of good role models. Sexual content: 7+ Some discussion about pregnancy and more. Drugs: 11+ alot of talk about tobacco ,whiskey, and wine. Marijuana is mentioned briefly. Language: 8+ one very quick and easy to miss s***.
