4.0 out of 5 stars CHARLEY'S WAR "THE END" - BIT OF A LET DOWN?, 11 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have soaked up every page of Charley's War in these volumes, with a huge variety of emotion; usually at the incompetent, rock-hreated generals and politicians of the War years. Charley's War's strong anti-war theme is backed up by factual references and statistics. However, I thought the end was a bit of a let down. I felt that extending Charley's journey to the Russian Civil War was a way of milking the story for a bit longer. Perhaps it's understandable, given the series' incredible popularity when the story was first told many years ago. In saying that, the Civil War is part of the anthology. So, the collection - and Vol 10 - wouldn't be complete without it. Is the end a bit of a let down? Possibly. Was "let down" how the soldiers felt, coming back to mass unemployment, after years of serving their country? Absolutely. Would I still buy this book after reading it? Definitely.

5.0 out of 5 stars FLAGS OF OUR FATHERS & LETTER FROM IWO JIMA (TIN BOX-EFFECT SET), 4 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I can't describe what an important historical document, and contrast, this DVD collection is. I grow weary of "How America Won the War" films, but these two films together are very special. It reminds me of "The Longest Day" and "Tora Tora Tora!" where the respective protagonists point-of-view were directed by directors from this respective countries. Both films are moving, gripping, but heart-rending. Have the courage to watch these back-to-back.
