WWII in HD

I don't know if this is considered a movie but the History Channel is airing color footage of WWII. So far it's mesmerizing. God Bless the troops who served and those serving now. Unbelievable. Maybe this is the wrong forum but I thought I start it here.

I've been catching them when I can. It is some pretty spectacular and almost surreal footage and story.

I've only watched bits and pieces but recorded the whole thing so far on digital DVR

watching it now, really good footage. What a hell WWII was. Those islands were defended to the death by Japs. Good thing Truman didn't order an invasion of mainland Japan, the cost of # our guys would have been staggering.

Made it through the 1st 5 episodes. Something else! What really is surprising is the managing of 2 wars 1/2 way around the globe at the same time. Some times I think the War in the Pacific gets lesser attention than the European campaign.


Nice watching the DVR, very fast forward through the commercials.

One thing that strikes you is how tough America and it's people were back then as compared to nowadays.

For instance there was no worry of political correctness, they rounded up the Japanese Americans and interred them to keep an eye on them while the war was going on. If we did that today, forget about it.

The President and the Congress never hesitated to do what was needed

Sometimes I wish as a nation we could go back a little technologically, and fundamentally to those days.

The scale and pace of industrial production boggles the mind: hundreds of ships, planes, tanks, etc everything to support the was effort. Everything had to be shipped overseas both east and west.

Yea, it was so awsome they even erected a National Park to memorialize the supreme excellence of the event.

Manzanar National Historic Site (U.S. National Park Service)

blah, blah, blah, blah - save it for the political forum.
