If anyone has Amazon Prime, they've suddenly added a ton of WW II documentaries, including the acclaimed WW II BBC series, World At War.

Don't tell me who wins!
I've come up with a set of rules that describe our reactions to technologies:
Spoiler:
1. Anything that is in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works.
2. Anything that's invented between when you’re fifteen and thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it.
3. Anything invented after you're thirty-five is against the natural order of things.

We won't know for another forty years, at least.

This would be a good thread for reviewing those vids, I think.

I have them all... along with a bunch others. WWII in Color is good, as is WW 1 or 2 in High Def. Just watched War Stories w Oliver North cover the Normandy Landing to the Freeing of France. I've traveled France 4-5 times.... missed so much. The place is literally full of History. It would be a worthwhile project to actually plan a vacation? ..... or just ask the taxi drivers for the best pub with a dart board? Pros and Cons to all we do.
