    If you like history, I highly recommend the book. Cornelius Ryan's "The Longest Day" and Stephen E. Ambrose, Band of Brothers.

    I love this kind of stuff. It demonstrates an incredible time in our history as a country and the outcome that provides us the current freedoms we all now take for granted.

    Very cool stuff. There is a lot of color footage that isn't your standard WWII footage.

    Re: WWII In HD

    Has anyone ever seen the videos of Hitler where they polished up the audio and video and put it in color. VERY powerful stuff. I watched a documentary on how people got brain washed by the dude and I can see why after watching those videos. Unfortunatly I would have to say that he was one of the best public speakers of all time.

    Thanks, CYCRAZY, for bringing this to my attention. I'm a big WWII history fan. I'll second the recommendation of Band of Brothers by Stephen E. Ambrose.

    I think you may be referring to "Triumph of the Will" which was kind of like his official propaganda film.
