From Academy Award-winning film director and screenwriter, Oliver Stone comes this fascinating documentary series that covers the last 60 years of American History. It focusses on the dramatically under-reported events of the era that shaped the USA. The series also includes newly discovered facts from the Kennedy administration and the Vietnam War, and looks at how America achieved its current global role post-Cold War.
''THE UNTOLD HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES focuses on events that at the time went under-reported, but crucially shaped America's unique and complex history of the last 110 years. The series debunks the heroes by restating the facts, whilst crediting those heroes lost to history. Exploring questions such as What did Stalin say to President Truman to make him drop the atomic bomb on Japan?; Did Eisenhower betray the US?; What were the real reasons behind World War 1 and II? and Was Reagan one of the worst or best Presidents of all time?, the American story is told in a way that has never been told before. It is the deepest contribution I could ever make in film to my children and the next generation. I can only hope a change in our thinking will result.'' OLIVER STONE
