      Burned myself out on it as a kid. Excellent series, but outdated for me.
      My worst jump story:
      My 13th jump was on the 13th day of the month, aircraft number 013.
      As recorded on my DA Form 1307 Individual Jump Log.
      No lie.

        The footage was and still is superb. And it was nice to hear the smooth tones of Lawrence Olivier, the greatest dramtist and thespian of his day....

          The narrator in "World War II in Color" gets on my remaining nerve.

            This series made quite an impact upon me as a young man...I really liked the interviews.

              I World at War series had a profound impact on me as I watched it as a child. True, lots of people in this series that are now long-gone, and to hear and see them is quite the thing. As far as being "dated", that is bound to happen to any documentary/film. In my opinion, I feel the documentary did more to set the standard for future film making and documentation and changed the way things either presently or historically are presented to us.

              I must disagree here. Much of the information known then has since been revised, expanded, and perhaps even proven erroneous. I do feel it would require much more of a review/re-write if we were to produce a remake or equivalent today.

                I first saw the World at War back in 1995 on the History Channel back when the had shows about history and not crappy restoration shows. It was a great show and I'm glad it's on ABC. I wish AHC could air Weapons at War aka Brute Force.
