Academy Award-winning film-maker Oliver Stone directs and narrates this documentary series in which he presents an unconventional look at the actions of the United States of America in the 20th century.
Stone is particularly concerned with the dropping of nuclear bombs on Japan in World War II and the Cold War years that followed, presenting evidence in favour of the seldom discussed proposition that the dropping of the bombs may not have been the only or easiest way to end the war.
The episodes are: 'World War II', 'Roosevelt, Truman and Wallace', 'The Bomb', 'The Cold War: 1945-1950', 'The 50s, Eisenhower, the Bomb and the Third World', 'JFK: To the Brink', 'Johnson, Nixon and Vietnam: Reversal of Fortune', 'Reagan, Gorbachev and the Third World: Revival of Fortune', 'Bush and Clinton: Squandered Peace - New World Order' and 'Bush and Obama: Age of Terror'.
