    I have not seen this one. I have thought about buying the series to go with my The World at War which is the best series about WW2 I have seen yet.

    I hope this one is good. So far, it has received excellent reviews as a documentary.

    First installment was excellent, giving a different perspective from the "folks at home". For instance, it was years before the general public knew what the actual casualties at Pearl Harbor were. Nothing new on the war itself, but interesting hearing from the folks who stayed home and depended on the news and propaganda networks for info.
