The mini-series provided much needed info on the Hapsburg s and the German dynasties. The Romanov's have been portrayed in several movies. Main fault is the rather over-the top acting of many of the players. Would recommend it to anyone interested in this time period.
This is an excellent purchase for history buffs, especially European history. Great education on three major dynasties, the Haspsburgs of Austria-Hungary, the Hohenzollerns of Germany, and the Romanovs of Russia. The clarity and sound of the dvds are very good. I enjoyed watching each episode and had a difficult time pulling myself away. The package arrived promptly. Thanks Overstock.com.
