    Thumbs up New Ken Burns Documentary

    http://www.pbs.org/thewar/

    I just heard about this earlier tonight, so I thought I'd pass along the info in case there were others who didn't know about it. From looking at some of the video clips it looks very well done and should be very interesting to watch if you're into WWII history.

    If it is even close to the job he did on the Civil War series, it will be great!

    His History of Jazz series was very good, as well. I'll look forward to seeing this one.

    Thanks for the reminder, I'll be tuned in.
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    I'm anxiously looking forward to it! "Discovered" (but was previously aware of) his Civil War Documentary this summer on PBS and loved it, and they've been re-showing his documentary on Baseball also.

    I didn't know he did a documentary on Jazz! I'll have to look into that one as well.

    I work at a military retirement community. We had a hour long preview of "The War", 5 - 10 minute segments from various chapters. It looked very interesting. Eagerly waiting for the series to start.

    Ken Burns does nothing but very well researched and balanced fact documentaries.
    Look up documentary in the dictionary and there is a picture of him.

    I too will not miss this when it debuts.
