    Yes, I have been watching the series.

    I watch anything about WWII :eusa_angel:

    My Father was in the Army and fought in N. Africia, Sicily, and in Italy with the 10th Mt Div.

    And my Uncle was in the Marines and invaded several islands including Iwo Jima

    Yup. I keep my laptop handy and do searches on battles discussed.

    It's a bit annoying how they hop around the globe so frequently, but it was a world war after all.

    My dad would have LOVED this, he was a real history buff, mainly the Civil War and WW2.

    He got me interested in those 2 areas too, he'd read a book about those times, then I'd read it when he was done.

    I'll check it out, thanks!

    Good series.

    Anyone remember "The World at War" in the 70s ??

    I do....Found it, like most other stuff from England, so dry I chafed.

    The 20th Century series was much more watchable.
