The Finest Series To Deal With The Second World War
6 December 2011 | by ScarletPimpernel64See all my reviews

"The Color of War" is to film what Ernie Pyle's 'Brave Men' was to the written page. Both dealt with aspects of the war that no one else thought of covering, as show how those particular parts did their bit to win the war in their own way.

I have seen many documentaries dealing with this war, and this is far away the best. Each and every episode touches the heartstrings, showing us how the members of the military felt, what they were going through, and the films pull no punches.

This should be required viewing for all schools and households. It makes us grateful for The Greatest Generation.
