Pretty good, but not the book
30 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I bought a copy of the mini series on ebay, the guy who had it lived all the way in Denmark.

Funny thing is that it was copied from television less than 60 miles from where I live in California.

The film was a bit disappointing if you read the book. Characters were merged and changed.

All in all though it was still very good.

People really need to read the forward of the book to see similarities of what is going on today. We may once again be involved in a war that we may or may not be able to win.
