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

  • 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

    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

    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

    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.

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

    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

    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
  • The truth

    This series should be shown in US high schools. Let the American youth learn from politicians mistakes, and learn to respect the world. Sadly our history books are filled with lies and fake triumphs. Over glorified false heroes fill the pages. That's how history is stolen. Sadly, decades, centuries, millenniums from now (if our world as we know it still exists) these people will still be glorified unless more people speak out against what is happening in the world like this series.
  • Russians should see this too

    As a student I was told that americans truly believe they had won WWII, and whatever russians did are insignificant, because USA was able end the war in great nuclear firework. However, this piece of work is interesting for both sides - russians and americans. There are facts that were never disclosed to openly to russians during any historical course, as well there are some new insights for americans. History is written by victors - and that’s very unfortunate.

    This series is a great companion to his book. I hope to see more shows. The book must be required reading in all schools.
