North and South Review
We saw the full mini series years ago and we had searched for it through Best Buy and could never find it! Never thought about Ebay having it and so I started searching and there it was with a stack of others that we purchased! We are very satisfied.

North & South rises to the occassion!
I had recently traveled the Southern Cities. Upon return decided to remind myself of the history of many of the charming cities such as Charleston, SC. My daughter, now 22, had never seen the mini series but was always a fan of Patrick Swayze after seeing Dirty Dancing. So with that in mind I decided to look to see if the North and South Complete Series available. To my delight, it was on DVD. I purchased the boxed set immediately and happy when it arrived. I had seen it 25 yrs ago, but knew I had forgotten many of the details from the epic mini-series.
I especially LOVED the first two "BOOKS," North & South/ Love & War- I was not however as much a fan of the third book "Heaven & Hell." But I don't think I ever saw it originally - the followup on many of the characters was interesting, and actually provides a much needed follow-up to that post war era in the US... the consequences of war, etc. The 3rd book in movie form however is not as well done as the first two books which came totally alive in contrast. Also, the characters in Heaven & Hell were a little more static (many replaced in the 3rd, or missing all together)- which left it a little flat in characters, it was definitely more about the state of the union post war. HOWEVER, the thrid installment it is worth the watch as a follow to the still so relevent (as is historically based fiction) of the first two installments filmed about 10 years earlier.
NORTH & SOUTH, Book 1, is PRE WAR US. The scenes, feeling, and characters ALL rich and well developed in this first novel onscreen. The 2nd book, LOVE & WAR, was equally stunning in it's massive epic undertaking of the Civil War! In especially BOOKS ONE AND TWO, the onscreen cast is star-studded, and has many now since passed guest stars (great to see again). They had amazing cast participation, REAL locations and a historical story!...
I am thrilled to have all 3 installments of this trilogy it in my DVD library. A great way to learn about the history of our country by BOTH the viewpoints of THE NORTH AND THE SOUTH, as the story cleverly follows a family from each - one South Carolina, and the other from Pennsylvania. This approach allowed the author to tell a very complete story without "taking sides" -- Feels very authentic in this way... because the emotions and stories of these families expresses the time... and is all a part of our USA story, and a human story.Read full review

Great collection. I try to get the "classics" to keep for the future. I watched this series when it was on television. Can't wait to watch it again and again!
