    Any thoughts on this mini-series? I recorded all of them with my brother when it was on the History Channel. I thought it was sobering and extremely well-deplicted. It captured war itself with seemingly no intent to score big in Hollywood. My favorites are the two episodes in Bastogne and the Hurtgen Forest, and the one, Why We Fight. What are your opinions?

    If you get the whole series on DVD it comes in this metal bound box which is cool enough to take along in combat.

    Anyone who enjoyed "Saving Private Ryan" and the realistic, staccatto rythym of combat photography involved in that movie, would positively enjoy this sixteen hour series.

    yeah, I like history, too. I did a powerpoint project on DDay before Christmas, it was almost more fun than cleaning a gun! Yeah, BoB is going to be the Patton of the future.

    Band of Brothers is an awesome movie. I also liked the Bastogne episode, but my really favorite part is towards the end when Maj Winters runs into Cpt Sobel and makes him salute. That was priceless!

    I really hope you aren't serious here.. you said you were starting Highschool next year so you are 13-14? What has the world come to with 13 year olds with guns.

    But anyways! I watched all of them I thought they were very good.
