Ken Burns is back with a new documentary, and it looks like another terrific piece of work.
Nearly 300,000 American lives were lost in World War II. Lest we forget.
From the PBS site:
THE WAR, a seven-part series directed and produced by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, tells the story of the Second World War through the personal accounts of a handful of men and women from four quintessentially American towns. The series explores the most intimate human dimensions of the greatest cataclysm in history â€” a worldwide catastrophe that touched the lives of every family on every street in every town in America â€” and demonstrates that in extraordinary times, there are no ordinary lives.
