witness to history
22 September 2019 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

George Stevens Jr. produces, narrates, and directs this documentary of the Allied advance from Day-D to Berlin using the notes and films from his Hollywood director father who was part of the Army Signal Corps during the war. Obviously, this is something personal and something historically important. Much of the footage is in color. It does not shy away from the brutality of the war. It's absolutely important to preserve this witness to history.
