Guy says it all. may have a slight spoiler, 12 June 2011
Author: colfromkirk from United Kingdom

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

I was disappointed with this too. As an aficionado of air warfare history, this vital aspect was almost entirely absent from the action, especially the role of 2nd Tactical Allied Airforce (2TAF) and the US equivalent the 9th USAAF. It's said that the detail's the thing and the overall quality of the production is demonstrated by scenes involving US airborne troops in the Ardense, actually carrying British Lee Enfield No4 .303 rifles instead of .30 cal M1 Garrands, something that never happened. Where the military advisers were is a mystery. Many of the interviews were of personnel who have been interviewed many times before on superior documentaries such as Jeremy Isaacs truly authoritative 'The World at War' narrated by the Great Laurence Olivier. Nothing new here just recycled. The same info could have been delivered in half the time if all the superfluous and dodgy drama had been left out.
