Oliver Stone's Untold History Of The United States premiered on SHO on November 12, 2012. This series focuses on human events, that at the time went under-reported, but crucially shaped America's unique and complex history over the last 60 years. A small group of historians and archivists have meticulously combed through the national archives of the U.S., Russia, South Africa, England, and Japan in search of papers, letters, memoranda, film, and photographs to assist in the documentation 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. Newly discovered facts and accounts from the Kennedy administration, the Vietnam War, and the great changes in America's role in the world since the fall of Communism in the 1980s will be presented.
