KEN BURNS-THE WAR (DVD/WS/6 DISC)

"The War," a seven-episode series, produced by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, that will examine the myriad ways in which the Second World War touched the lives of every family on every street in every town . By telling the stories of ordinary people in four quintessentially American towns - Waterbury, Connecticut; Mobile, Alabama; Sacramento, California; and the tiny farming town of Luverne, Minnesota - the series will portray this enormous worldwide catastrophe on an intimate, human scale. The War will intertwine vivid eyewitness accounts of the harrowing realities of life on the front lines with reminiscences of Americans who never left their home towns, and who tried their best to carry on with the business of daily life while their fathers and brothers and sons were overseas. The film will honor and celebrate the bravery, endurance, and sacrifice, of the generation of Americans who lived through what will always be known simply as "The War".

    The work that was done on this mini-series is phenomenal. Although it's not a subject that we often want to think about, Ken Burns has depicted the War as it was in it's truest form. Something that everyone should see, to appreciate the country that we live in, and the people who fought during this time of our history.

    Thoroughly enjoyed the DVD "The War" and hope it will be shown in every school across America. Touched by the story and characters came to life, felt as if I knew every character as a family member. Helped to understand my parents generation and the struggles for them in their lifetime.
