The Memorial Day Prize Bundle Includes:

  • Conquest of America
  • WWII in HD Collector's Edition Blu-Ray

    Seventy years in the making. Three thousand hours of color footage few knew existed. The first documentary to show original color footage of World War II in immersive HD, the world premiere HISTORY series WWII IN HD uses the journals and accounts of those who served in the biggest battles to create a personal, introspective and detailed look at life on and off the front lines. This lavish gift set includes the original HISTORY series plus two specials: THE AIR WAR and IWO JIMA.

    WWI - The Great War

    History® is proud to present the definitive collection of documentary programs on World War One. Experience the world-changing events from the birth of what became known as The Great War to the tragic, final day where over 13,000 men died. In the four year period from 1914 – 1918, the war was responsible for over 40 million casualties and over 20 million deaths. Join the brave servicemen of land, sea, and air as they valiantly fought alongside their Allied brothers in this “war to end all wars.”

    Conquest of America

    After Columbus came conquest. From all corners of the world, explorers reached the shores of the New World to reap untold riches, seek new routes to the Far East, and gain the most elusive glory of all – a place in history. CONQUEST OF AMERICA brings a stunning four-part series from HISTORY to DVD. A sweeping saga of bravery, cruelty and pure folly, these are the stories of adventurers who stopped at nothing to conquer an unknown land and its people. Led by legendary cities of gold and mythical passages to China, foiled by international intrigue and mutiny on the high seas, men like Francisco Vasquez de Coronado, Henry Hudson, Jean Ribault and Vitus Bering left an indelible mark on a vast new continent. Straight from the explorers’ journals, European diaries and oral histories of Native Americans, CONQUEST OF AMERICA presents an amazing, region-by-region account of extraordinary times and men. Expert commentary and vivid on-site reenactments complete this epic course in history. Also included in this special DVD set are four bonus documentaries exploring the dramatic rise and fall of Christopher Columbus; the untold story of the Pilgrims’ desperate journey across the Atlantic; and the infamous struggles of the pioneers of Jamestown, the first permanent British settlement in North America. CONQUEST OF AMERICA contains 8 acclaimed documentaries on 4 DVDs.

      To remember forever the great sacrifice they have rendered for our country which is not in vain.

      To me, Memorial Day means to take the time to humbly thank those who have given all and have made it possible for me to live the life that I have. And not just those who we usually think of in wars past but also present. Their sacrifice provides our daily lives with more security and peace of mind. We just need to make sure we don’t take it for granted.

      I’m named after my uncle who flew B-24s in WW2. Memorial day is a chance to take time and enjoy the bounteous blessings we can partake of thanks to all our troops now and in times past. I think of how brave my uncle was to circle his supply drop zone 3 times to get it right so stranded paratroopers would get what they needed. He died for his bravery and memorial day is a chance to reflect on unselfish act like that.

      Memorial Day to me is a chance to pay tribute to all those great people that have made our families and country great, especially military veterans. It is a chance to spend more time with our family and take stock of what is important in our lives.

      To put it simply, it’s a tribute to the families of those unsung heroes who sacrified thier lives for the sake of their country.

      To me, Memorial Day is a commemoration of those who served, and more importantly, to recall those struggles in American history that are forgotten. I’ve made it a point to put flowers at my local WWI, WWII, and Korean War monuments, as so many of them all over the country stand as almost totally forgotten monuments. Make sure to pay homage to veterans not just of recent wars, but of those throughout our history, especially those wars that are overlooked and/or marginalized (Korea, WWI, War of 1812, etc.)

      Happy Memorial Day weekend.

      Memorial Day isn’t a day for sales or for getting drunk or partying. It’s a solemn day of remembrance. Sadly, this has been lost through the years, and it has turned into another commercial holiday. But those of us who truly understand the sacrifice of our men and women in the military must keep the true meaning of Memorial Day alive.

      Memorial Day is a day to reflect and remember the amazing Veterans who have gone before us. The ones who may have made the ultimate sacrifce, or perhaps survived to come home but have since left us. We need to remember to stop and just sit and think about them, they are the reason we can have this weekend to enjoy family and friends — because our country is free.

      What memorial day means to me? It reminds how much I miss my dad.

      Memorial Day is a collective celebration of honor. Many Americans pay tribute to our fallen military heroes throughout the year during various commemorations but Memorial Day is the one day of the year in which all patriots are remembered for their sacrifice. Remember Pearl Harbor!

      In honor of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms, Memorial Day is for you.

      For me, it is the realization as I grow older, that the liberty, the blessings, the life I have in this country did not come without a cost. Some lost limbs, vision, mental health, some were burned, others paid a far greater cost with their life. They offered their service for our country and our freedom. Their families paid with the injury or lost of their loved one. It would be a disservice to dishonor their memory, their sacrifice by not honoring them on this and on every day.

      Memorial day is a day of remembrance to all the men and women who have their lives in hardship and war for our freedom
