    Yes, another chance for them to tell us how the Americans won the war,can't wait.

    I really enjoyed Band of Brothers and watch it with my American wive on a regular basis, the Pacific did not hold my attention and I stopped watching 3/4's of the way through part 1. Hopefully this new one will be as good as B of B.

    Sadly they will never do North Africa as mostly it was won by the British & Commonwealth forces.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Well said Jerry !

    My father was a Sapper in the RE, he did his national service and later stayed on longer, he visited Tobruk while on exercise in the late 50s or early 60s, saw all the graves, I think they were clearing mines later on, will have to ask him again

    I think our US brothers in arms underestimate the importance of the Africa campaign, if indeed we had lost North Africa and the Med, there would have been no D- Day and the Axis powers would have run riot everywhere, the US would have been compromised in MO

    Exactly, I ended up reading a book and just watching the battle scenes. It (The Pacific) just did not hold my attention at all.

    He should remake the Dambusters but he would probably use B17's

    I am sure itís been considered, but the dog may be a problem for the US audiences and people in general

    I am sure I saw a recent showing of it or maybe it was a documentary, but they cut the dogs name out.

    This looks good, but I will forever hold on to my dream of a Hollywood take on a kompanie of Heer infantry on the East Front, following them from the time of their recruitment until the bitter end at Berlin. Of course, that will never happen in my lifetime...
