Sorry to say that young people today have NO IDEA what the US accomplished once we committed to "GIT ER DONE". If it weren't for our determination as a nation the French and British would be speaking German and eating Sauerkraut.

Ive actually got Greenville news page presses that say "Germans surrender" on them. Pretty cool piece of history we found lining the walls of an old house on some land we hunt.

I doubt that the Russian's would have allowed that. Also, Germany should not have hated us, they should have hated Japan for being the idiots who awoke the sleeping giant that ended anything they were thinking of doing after 1945.

Well Germany nor Hitler hated the US, so there's that.

The History Channel is doing a three night series on the World Wars starting Memorial Day. Should be awesome!

I own it on DVD, and The Pacific, just like the fact I can watch it digitally, is what I meant.
