A superb video history
16 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A video history of an American combat pilot's experience in World War II compiled and narrated by the pilot himself. This video is a rare experience that any historian, professional or amateur, must see because it makes real what is usually only left to the imagination. It is especially rare because it is the experience of a fighter on the front lines and not the usual historical view provided in books and videos that is almost always from the perspective of the general or similar command officer ordering others to do his killing for him. Much better than that sentimental garbage that war profiteers like Ken Burns put out.
