I have to rate this documentary right up there with the very best ever made on the subject of WWII, up there with The World At War. This is a very different approach to this subject, very personal, heartwarming and yes, heartbreaking, the people, the places, the battles at home and abroad, the mothers wringing their hands, waiting at home to hear word of their boys, all of it strung together as only a loving artist could create. Do yourself a favour and buy this as soon as possible, even if you think WWII documentaries are not for you, you will be greatly surprised and rewarded. It has to be one of the most lovingly put together Documenataries I have ever watched on any subject. To the makers: Well done, what a job you have done. Deserved an Oscar hands down!
