I'm a big war film buff anyhow so perhaps I'm biased, but this mini series is just fantastic! Mostly previously unseen original footage shot in color during the war. Every campaign is covered, it really puts into perspective how global the war really was. It also makes me realize that most Americans today have no clue what real sacrifice is. Several Veterans are chronicled in a biographical format, using the war footage to sort of reinact their story. One of the Vets is a nurse, June Wandrey, and her description of her duties will stop you dead in your tracks. Makes me think twice before complaining about a busy shift.
