FYI... Wal-Mart has "The War" in hardcover, about $32. I looked through it briefly. Looks to be well done, and may cover some of the detailed accounts that the TV show can't. Also, there is a DVD set they sell, maybe the same thing they're showing on PBS(?).

Just FYI...

I will decide on the book after I watch the rest of the show. Then before I buy the book I will go to Books-A-Million have a couple cups of coffee and skim through it. Thats my routine for buying books.

It would be worth owning both the video series AND the book.

As far as documentaries go.....I think Burns pretty much makes all the others pale in comparison..

This PM they referenced Bill Mauldin's account of Anzio ... I have his post-war compilation of toons from the Stars and Stripes, which is also his account of the war.... good read, it is a great whimsical (at times) laymans perspective of the war.
