This was much better than I had hoped.
This is my first of the “Great Courses” I have listened to, and it was definitely worth it. It is a brief retelling of history without our myths or outright lies about the origins of America. What we have been taught in school is at the least propaganda, and in many cases outright falsehood.
Even with the conservative viewpoint of Dr Stoler, it was eye opening to see the realities behind previous presidents, and historical events. He especially eradicated the myths of our “defense only” military history.
There is nothing I can fault on this course. It is 12 hours of information I may have heard bits about, but never the full story. I cannot recommend this enough.
