Band Of Brothers
One of HBO's best shows. Band of Brothers is the story of the men in the 101st Airborne Division during World War II. It fellows Easy Company from signing up for service all the way to being deep into enemy territory. Each episode starts off with interviews with the real life surviving members of Easy Company telling what they remember from the war. Foreshadowing everything you are about to see. This gives the reenactment show a complete different feel from others.
If you are a history buff and have not seen this show you are truly missing out. The show does a great job of capturing what time period was like and the stress soldiers were under. The story is amazing as it is pieced together by living members and falling soldiers letters sent back home. With this method the show was able to give you a different take on the war and how we forget how war can affect the people fighting it. This is a show you need to see if you like WWII stuff. Hop on HBO and check it out.
