Excellent historical drama.
9 March 2005 | by securitypoliceSee all my reviews

Excellent historical drama about WWII American pilots shot down and taken prisoner by Hitler's forces. Overview of some of their plight while being transported to the holding camps and also once they arrived at those holding camps. True insight in to the minds of those being held prisoner. The followers as well as those that proved themselves to be leaders. You truly feel their horror, despair and joy during their ordeal. Makes you want to pat them on the back, right along with each other. Cry when they feel like there is no hope left and as they watch others suffer even worse than they. And shake the hands of those who stood up and did the only things they could to help each other.Interesting from a historical as well as social and human standpoint. I am so glad that the History Channel did this production. And would like to see those that played the core pilots in other productions. A must see if you are at all interested in the history of our country and our fighting men.
