I found a quite good documentary about the D-day landing and so on. From an American view though...
I enjoyed watching the first few episodes listening to the men that was there so I could hear how it really did go through their words!

They are American, but they are not from the States, unless Canada is now the 51st state.

I'm refering to the view on the Germans during the war. In every documentary the same old shit about how the germans were the savages of their time....

I remember watching this on 4OD a while back. It was alright.

And it's not just American, There's British and Canadian too.

Just finished all six episodes. It'd be a lot better if they had more period film and quit with the slow motion explosions. I swear I spent 30 minutes total out of the whole documentary all in all just watching shitty slo-mo.

I didn't have time to post on the forums yesterday, but my local PBS station aired this, which was pretty interesting to see all of the defenses that the Germans built.

How about those "history channel" documentaries were after every commercial break (every 5 minutes in USA) you'll have to go through the same events again...
I have always felt that americans are the worst documentarists since they care more about drama (most important thing) and visuals than telling the history.

You're right on that. They split 30 minutes shows half and half with content and commercials, the content part going over what was gone over before the commercials interrupted... I'm so glad I don't watch TV anymore.

I've seen a documentary on the Battle of the Bulge that had a gung-ho U.S. Army soldier saying that if the Army had a AC-130 Spectre Gunship back in those days it could see through cloud cover with thermal imaging and would've sniped all those pesky Nazi tanks.

...just let that soak in. It was called "Patton 360".

I'm currently watching the 'Battlefield TV Series Season Three' (Vietnam) and I kinda like it so far.
Has anyone seen the first seasons (WW2), are they any good (specifically for normandy)?
