    IIRC there was an entire 2 or 3 hour program on PBS about this chap about 4 or 5 years ago which was very well done. Looks like this video is a montage of excerpts from that program.

    Quentin is a fellow Minnesotan, from Luverne Minnesota, I beleive he passed away a year or so ago. His Documentary has been shown on the Local PBS station several times, a little dry, but interesting. Don't recall it being over an hour long.

    Quentin was also featured in Ken Burn's PBS Mini-series "The War". I remember in both show they amphasises how his exploits in WWII changed him.
