    Great show. To see what those men went through to make the world a better place makes me all the more thankful for their sacrifices.

    Missed the episode featuring the battle of Tarawa. This battle is one which has fascinated me for years. I'm planning to visit the island and a few others if and when I can afford it.

    I am a huge ww2 buff in the fact I love to watch and read about the whole thing. The history of it has fascinated me my whole life. My grandfather, passed away now for some time. He was involved in D Day and was a guard at the Nuremberg trials. He is in some footage we have seen on the discovery channel on different shows. Standing at parade rest inside the court room. My family has pictures that my grand father took of Hess and someone else in their cells. He was hitlers personal physician.

    Here is a question. You watch this show and you walk through the battles as the show portrays them. The fact that 12000 americans died in battle each month during that period between 1943 to 1945. Ask yourself this. Is our young people brave enough to do as they did if asked to?

    Not taking anything away from the guys serving in today's war(s), but I tend to think in the WW's our soldiers were put through a much different level of hell that we'll never be able to understand, and hopefully no one will ever have to deal with again.

    I've watched probably 20 hours of this show, might actually get the dvd set when/if it comes out.

    I think I said this wrong. Of course I believe the young men and women today are brave enough, as they are facing death everyday on the streets of Iraq and Afghanistan.

    My thank you to any women or man serving our country in any capacity.

    I just finished watching a similar show on Smithsonian HD called Apocalypse WW2 it was narrated by Martin Sheen. Hard hitting stuff man, it got in deep with all the campaigns especially the pacific.

    I have a friend here who writes a weekly article on WWII. Send you a link on that too if your interested. Read "FlyBoys" yet?

    As far as if our youth of today would, I think they might surprise us.
