Superb, 19 November 2009
Author: Clay Loomis from Arroyo Grande, California

This was a superb History Channel documentary following the stories of 12 Americans, eleven men and one woman, through both theaters of World War Two. All ten one hour parts were very compelling.

When the first part started I was worried when I saw the credits listed that Rob Lowe, LL Cool J, etc. were going to be in it. I was afraid this was going to be a movie and not a documentary as advertised. I was quickly relieved to find out they were just lending their voices to the words of those that were there. Some of those featured are no longer with us, and needed a voice loan. Others are still with us and their own words flowed seamlessly from older to younger.

From Pearl Harbor to V-E and V-J days, and all the horrors of war in between, this documentary covered it all with first person accounts that were aided by a great deal of recently discovered color footage taken during the war. I can't give you any spoilers here. It's history, and everyone knows the basic tale, but the personal experiences of those that lived it are always dramatic, wrenching stories.

As is mentioned at the end of the conclusive part 10, over 16 million Americans served in WW II and only about 10 percent of them are alive today. The more of these individual stories that get recorded, the happier I'll be, because we shouldn't forget. There are no more stories coming from WW I vets, and not many of them were put to film. Let's grab the WW II stories while we still can.

Not to be missed.
