Storyline

Inspired by James Warner Bellah's "The Valiant Virginians", a 1953 book that had previously been serialized in "The Saturday Evening Post", this series focused on the impact war has on the young men fighting it. Bellah's stories were about the smaller incidents that impacted the regular soldier, not just the officers, and this show reflected this sensibility. Written by rtvf

Brothers on the bridge
9 January 2007 | by JTGogollSee all my reviews

42 years ago I watched a TV show that had a lifetime effect on me. " The Americans" was probably the first show that taught some of our military history to this 8 year old. And now, as a 53 year old veteran of Vietnam, a past Confederate Reenactor enlisted in the 5th Alabama Batallion, Archers Brigade CSA, and a Career DOD Civilian, I'll never forget the image where the two brothers met over Musket sights. In my memory it was a fantastic show. I agree with all those who have written about their memories and truly wish I could also again see this fine series.

Thankyou for reminding me of this wonderful show. I too, thought it was a figment of my imagination. What a treasure this could be as a Series DVD ! And I tip my hat to those, my age, that remember "The Americans"
