I wish it was on the History Channel, 16 May 2005
Author: bcolquho from Saco, Maine

I saw this on A&E back in 1989. The series was based on Dwight D. Eisenhower's book of the same name. It covered the entire ETO, (European Theater of Operation, for those of you who weren't in the military.) It uses archive footage of the famous and infamous. I wish it was on the History Channel. A show like that is a classic and should be shown again for those who were born after 1989. It's a good show. The program was interesting. If it's on VHS, or DVD, then I say buy it. It's very interesting. You'll love it. I did. I'm sure you will too. If you don't, don't blame me and certainly don't shoot the messenger. That's me too.
