The final phase of WWII brilliantly documented...
31 August 2010 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

Having just completed my own memoir of what it was like (as a teen) during WWII, I was drawn to this Ken Burns documentary which enabled me to relive those experiences as I recalled them.

Especially moving is the account of FDR's death, coming as it did before victory was in sight and the war came to a close. Also the impressive aerial view of the number of American warships as they prepared for battle.

The previous commentator has described in vivid detail all of the events depicted here so I'll not repeat them again. But for any student of history, this account of those days in 1945 that marked the allied victory and the great sacrifices made in the name of freedom, is one that should definitely be sought out and viewed.

Vivid and unforgettable in the telling. Hard to take are the scenes of the concentration camps and what the German villagers were taken to see, those who denied knowing anything about what was going on--despite the smell of death and human flesh from the gas ovens.

It's the kind of documentary about WWII that everyone should see.
