Band of Brothers
If you haven't had a chance to catch this ten-part HBO miniseries on the Easy Company of the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, U.S. 101st Airborne Division, get thee to a video store. (Or wait for it to come on the History Channel again.)
Beginning with the company's training and their participation in D-Day to the end of the war, Band of Brothers is wonderfully acted. Produced by Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks, it is a hauntingly vivid portrait of the true face of war.
