new series on the History Channel called WWII in HD. It follows the stories of 12 Americans during the Second World War. All appear to be ordinary citizens who did extraordinary things during the War and lived to tell about it.
Unlike most historic films of that time period, almost all of the film in this series is shot in color. I never knew there was that much color photography from WWII and nearly all of this is film I have never seen before. Much of it is pretty gruesome which accounts for part of the reason it has not been seen.
If you get a chance, check out WWII in HD. Stupid title, but great television.
