History Presents: The Definitive WW1 And WWII Collection

My family is really into history.  We live in PA and since I was a little girl I remember going to Gettysburg every single year.  The only year I missed was 2010 when I was pregnant with Quinn and having a really rough time.
Besides that year, we have been there every year and we are already planning our 2015 trip.  We are thinking of going in the Spring and doing the horseback tour.
Sadly for my hubby he is not that much into history and he is surrounded by us lol.

And yes I totally have several things auto-tuned on the History channel.  A few weeks ago I think I gave him a stress attack on football Sunday when the channel suddenly turned to H2 and one of the Clash of Gods episodes and again a few nights later when The Third Reich: The Fall suddenly came on.

My family (besides my hubby) is into history.
When I was asked to review History Present: The Definitive WWI and WWII, I honestly had to debate with myself should this be a self gift or should I give it to someone in my family??
In the end I choose to give it to my dad his B-Day was just a few weeks ago, so it arrived at the perfect time!

Synopsis: 
 Hitler. Mussolini. Patton. De Gaulle. MacArthur. Before they were giants, they were infantrymen and privates in the "war to end all wars." Binge-watch the History Channel Mini-series which originally aired across three nights all at once. This is the story of these devastating three decades of war, through the eyes of the men who were forged in the trenches and came to command a world on the brink of disaster.
Discover how the First World War changed the face of battle forever, from hand-to-hand combat to high-tech warfare, in "history of WWI: The First Modern War". Experience the acrobatic encounters of flying aces high above the battlefield in "Dogfights". Watch the Normandy assault in spectacular high definition in "D-Day" in HD, and learn soldier's personal stories in "WWII" in HD and "The Color Of War". Learn which inventions decided the war in "Ultimate WWII Weapons", and get a dramatic view of U.S. General George Patton's brilliant strategy in "Patton 360". And, witness the whole devastating three decades of war through the eyes of the men forged in the trenches of WWI before commanding the world in WWII - Franklin Roosevelt, Adolf Hitler, Winston Churchill, Joseph Stalin, and others - in the Emmy(R) nominated miniseries "The World Wars" Truly an unforgettable collection.
