The People, not The War...
Reviewed in the United States on October 4, 2017
This series may be named "The War" but I found more about people and their emotions than fighting and war. Those who bravely took part in the 'atrocity' called war represented the best of the best. As shown by Ken Burns brilliantly, they often quaked in their boots as they trod over and alongside their brothers-in-arms, were sickened with the sights, sounds and smells of war. These are brave heroes who did what had to be done to conserve our freedom at any cost. The lives lost, the tears shed, the hearts broken were done so to conserve life in America, the life we all take so for granted today.
Born in 1961, I feel privileged to have been able to view the many sides of this war. So many of us had relatives who fought in this war. I am unable to adequately demonstrate my appreciation for every single one of our country's noble unsung heroes.
