The series is quite good. It contains film never shown before and some gruesome scenes. Liked the color film from the Pacific shot by the Navy and marines.

Also, detailed the sad decisions that commanders must make in wartime. The B-17s flying missions over Berlin were actually decoys. Their bombing was secondary to drawing out the luftwaffe (70 percent was stationed around Berlin). As the german fighters hit the bombers, allied fighter planes took out the germans.

The result was less aircraft on the eastern front and Italian front. And, eventually, few enemy aircraft to opppose the D-Day landings. But, the bomber crews paid a terrible price.
