Movie Reviews

A Landmark Collection
Politix Fan | 06/09/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Through his series of NBC documentaries,and his best-selling books, Tom Brokaw reminded us all of the trial, tribulations and sacrifices made by the generation that got the U.S. through the Great Depression and World War Two. Here for the first time in one DVD collection, are all three of Brokaw's "Greatest Generation" documentaries -- companions to his books that bring the emotional power of video to his stories of the average Americans who waged America's toughest battles. Brokaw brings his own personal integrity to every frame, and develops an intimate relationship with his subjects -- this allows him to delve deeply into not just war stories, but into the ways these men were changed when they came back home. Each of the three main features weaves beautifully shot interviews and contemporary scenes with remarkable archival footage of the war. This three-disc set is crammed with extras, interviews with veterans and POW camp survivors -- who describe in unforgettable details their experience in war, and their ordeals upon returning to the US. This is really a landmark collection, a must-have for any student of history, and anyone who appreciates the accomplishments of "The Greatest Generation.""
