Lest history repeats itself, 1 October 2007
Author: ron-oneto-1 from United States

I had seen "Crusade in Europe" on TV when it first came out. After viewing, Ken Burns "The War", I think it is time for this series to be placed on DVD as soon as possible. If "The War" has a good viewing audience, "Crusade in Europe" will be a smash. It is time to show what the "Greatest Generation" went through. In my family alone, we had 9 members in the Second World War and I was one of those kids collecting glass, metal, tires and whatever. My uncle died at Normandy in the first wave. Another uncle fought in North Africa, Sicily, Cassino, and Anzio where he was serious wound. Before they are all gone, its time to show the famous and the infamous once again. We have to remember those men and women who served and the type of people they were and what they stood for, on both sides. We most know our history and its people.
