I was looking forward to watching this but it wasn't very good, quite frankly. The interviews with the surviving soldiers was the only interesting thing in this documentary. The history presented wasn't anything new and it was so heavily American-centric I couldn't watch it to the end. For example, in the D day episodes, they never talked about the beaches invaded by the British or the Canadians, only the ones that were assigned to the Americans. The rest of the series made it look like it was only the Americans who fought and won the war. The contributions made by the other allied forces were never mentioned. This was not a balanced documentary about WWII. It was an American film made by Americans for Americans to booster their patriotism. If that is the kind of thing you are looking for, this is the film for you.

"75 Years of WWII" cannot go unnoticed in the KCLS catalog. It is tells the story of our countries largest amphibious assault in our history. "Through the personal accounts of soldiers on both sides," we learn what really happened that day. Even the top commander General Eisenhower is interviewed. Foot soldiers and commanders for both sides are interviewed. By the end we realize that D "deadliest conflict in human history". I did not have family there that day, but my heart goes out to all those who did. These were all brave men and women who put fear aside and fought a valiant fight which we eventually won. It is a fitting tribute to these men and women and their families. I hope it is shown in schools as part of U.S. History courses. KCLS has 11 copies and already there are 36 patrons who have it on holds. It deserves the attention and I hope others will leave their comments after watching the film. Just leave them here on the KCLS web site. Thanks!
