As they begin their journey home from their student exchange term, Charlie Brown and the gang find themselves sidetracked. They have severe car trouble and more importantly, they pass by various monuments to World Wars I and II. With Linus guiding them through these memorials, they learn about the events of the wars and the sacrifices required of the troops who fought them. Written by

Linus van Pelt:
June 6th, 1944. This is the beach where the Allies landed in World War II. Thousands of men came ashore right here where you're standing.
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt:
Came ashore, from where?
Linus van Pelt:
From across the Channel. It was terrible, I read that by 10:30 in the morning, over 3000 men had been killed or wounded.

I was 9 years old and in the hospital because of respiratory problems and was going through their video library and came across this. It was almost 6 years until I saw it again, I could never find it at any video retailer, and Paramount had just released all the shows remastered on tape. It's a somber and personal look at World War II, it should be required for history afficiados (forgive spelling). Do not miss.
