Are we talking about WWII in HD? I'm watching that right now and it's awesome. I was thinking about what would have happened if the German commander at normandy would have followed directions and had all his troops on the beach. 10,000 casualties would have been much more.

 

Thinking of our WWII vets while watching. Am I going to be some old fart on an Iraq war discussion forum in 50 years? I wonder. . . Here's to our fine old farts!!!!!

I'm still trying to decide on a Christmas gift for a very dear old friend of mine that I've been friends with since 3rd grade. I had been planning on giving him a subscription to WWII magazine, but now I think I might buy him this fine DVD set instead (even though it won't be delivered until January of 2010!).

The last episode ended just a few minutes ago and it was really an excellent documentary in every way. I'm so glad that we have The History Channel to make World War II "come alive" to so many generations of American children and younger adults (and other nations) who have such a limited understanding of who the participants were, and why this war had to be won.

Guess I'll have to catch it on a re-run. A guy from work watched it and he said it was great Hopefully they'll show it again soon and better yet all in the same day!!!

I received mine in the mail about a week ago. I'm watching it tonight again (w/o "HD"). Really an outstanding documentary covering both the ETO and Pacific campaigns.

Well worth the price, M-1! I think the best documentaries are the ones that are made using the Veteran's own words like this one does. In the last episode, which tells which of the 12 have passed away I got a lump in my throat and wished that my Dad would have survived into his 80's instead of dying at age 69, but then I thought about all the ones that lost their lives at age 25 or younger who never had the opportunity to raise a family and that put things in perspective. The fact that you have dedicated so much of your life to the memory of your father makes me proud to be your friend as well as a member of the VI Corps family.
