Plot Synopsis

Academy Award-winning director Oliver Stone created, executive produced and narrates this ten-episode documentary series about the recent history of the United States. Each one-hour episode focuses on a different human event, that at the time went under-reported, but crucially shaped America's unique and complex history over the last 60 years. Over a two-year period, Stone and a small group of historians and archivists meticulously combed through the national archives of the United States, Russia, South Africa, England, and Japan in search of papers, letters, memoranda, film, and photographs to document the stories of unknown historical figures and events that have rarely, if ever, been revealed. Topics range from President Harry Truman's decision to drop the atomic bomb on Japan to the origins and reasons for the Cold War with the Soviet Union to the fierce struggle between war and peace in America's national security complex.
