An Artful Presentation of the Cold Hard Facts

Comments about PBS American Experience: The Battle of the Bulge DVD:

From the first few frames of this film you are transported back in time to the atmosphere of 1940's Europe. You are given a sense of the ebb and flow in the prosecution of the war in France and the lead up to the battle to come. Interviews with veterans of the battle relate just how surprising the attack was to everyone and how truly horrible it quickly became. The soldiers tell how it looked from a foxhole eyes view and describe the brutality of this battle in raw emotional detail. David McCullough does a masterful job of presenting this story in a respectful and coherent manner.

True Heroes

By Asterix

from Tennessee

Comments about PBS American Experience: The Battle of the Bulge DVD:

I want to say "Thank-you,and God bless!" to all of the men who fought in this battle, and for sacrificing their lives for the people of France. I was born in America, but my mother is from Brittany, France. She was three yrs. old during the time of this invasion. The true heroes of this war not only saved lives from Hitler, but also gave life to our family! :)

The Turning Point

By Big Al

from Pompano Beach, FL

Verified Buyer

Comments about PBS American Experience: The Battle of the Bulge DVD:

The Battle of the Bulge is second only to the D-
Day Landing at Normandy, as a pivotal event of WW2 in Europe. Patton's brillance in relieving the be-sieged soldiers at Bastogne, and stopping the advance of the Germans was fantastic. It was only succeeded in the ignorance of the decision to "push the Germans back", instead of cutting them off, and having them surrounded. Too many extra, un-necessary casualties by that decision.

Great Story told by men who were there!

By Airborne!

from Ohio

Comments about PBS American Experience: The Battle of the Bulge DVD:

If you want to learn the history of the Battle of the Bulge from the men who lived it, this is it! The video is excellent but the personal accounts of both officers and enlisted makes this story come to life over simply having a narrator.

An 89 year old in my VFW Honor Guard was there and I can't wait to share this video with him.
