A perfect documentary
16 June 2019 | by smiledaydreamSee all my reviews

This covers so many details. It is interesting to watch in every moment. It is produced in a easy to watch entertainment style but all of it is serious and extremely well documented. I study a lot of history and got a lot out of this. If you like history this is a no miss.
