What the hell is a 'wargammer'?

Fighting over legs?

With legs?

Between legs?

You can hit their website for more information.

And I thank you!

LOL, I stand corrected. I am glad that I was wrong, as the African American experience in WWII was unique and had a huge impact on the Civil Rights movement.

Thanks for posting. The film looks fantastic.

Yeah, I saw the commercials for this one. I wonder if they will have anything new to report. Anyone know?

Well, the History Channel does not know either -

It is an American Channel - so, History Light.

For the true buff, History International is superior.

Know what I hate?

When Sigourney Weaver replaces the narration by David Attenborough in his fantastic nature documentaries on the Discovery and Science Channels.

I have to go to MVGroup to get the 'real thing'.

Oh you seekers of the new who run terrified from history into the clutches of an eternal life where no electric shaver can be built to last.

I'll watch it and let you know.



I haven't seen anything remarkably different in the clips I've seen except for the format, and also some of the Pacific stuff.

The History Channel website however seems to profess new footage found within the last couple of years.

National Geographic another channel has had some really neat content over the last couple of years that has been mindblowingly beautiful to someone like myself that models WWII warbirds.



If the History Channel's newest series is remotely similar to National Geographic's, it will be worth watching... even for the snarky tools roaming the boards.
