Default WWII Documentary

I'm reading Stars & Stripes right now - an article about a WWII Documentary from Filmmaker Ken Burns that will air on PBS next week sometime. Looks VERY interesting. It's a 14 hour 7 part series that is supposed to be very graphic and real. This includes "raw interviews and graphic battle footage".

The fimmakers want to make sure the troops overseas will be able to see it so military officials are working out the rights and restrictions to air it on AFN (armed forces network) out here.

Does anyone like WWII history? I find it very interesting.

I love World War II history especially the history of the Blitz on London.

I just bought the companion book on CDs and will comment further when I have finished it. It should be very interesting, and enlightening. I have several of Ken Burns' other series -- Baseball (to no one's surprise, I'm sure) and the Civil War. I would like to get Jazz as well.
