It was well worth watching. I thought it was quite a scene when airman Benjamin Sharp braved it with the visiting Luftwaffe officer explaining how they were being mistreated against the Geneva Convention. Their salute hit the spot tho I don't remember if it was said it really took place, but the conversation did and it was a moving moment between men of honor. Of course it paid off in the end for the remaining airmen at least.

As with the Billy Fiske documentary I wasn't aware this was showing. And again thanks http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

The last Days of WWII: Iwo Jima is on tonight @ 8pm EST. I had an old High School teacher that was a casualty on Iwo from a grenade in his foxhole. His story was amazing.

The History channel, military history channel and now the military channel (replaced discovery wings).

All amount to a great deal of WW2 history that my wife is sick and tired of watching. She can't understand how I can get so excited about an upcoming, black and white film of about some plane or other. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif

She's into the HGTV - Home and Garden, decorating and design stuff. All the stuff that keeps me on the road to Lowes or HomeDepot constantly. Heck, I oughta buy stock in both.

It's great to have some internet buddies that are interested in the same stuff I am.

Ma' friend Bearcat99 is always on the prowl for the WW2 goodies --- too cool http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

Shoot! I missed it!

Nearmiss;

I know the feeling. Luckily, my wife's down with watching that stuff with me most of the time...if for no other reason than I'm in the living room with her and not on my computer playing IL-2!
