Amazon Prime

If anyone has Amazon Prime, they've suddenly added a ton of WW II documentaries, including the acclaimed WW II BBC series, World At War.
A joke going around Moscow during The Great Terror:

The NKVD knocks on a door.
The inhabitants ask who it is.
“NKVD.”
“You’ve got the wrong apartment. The Communists are upstairs.”

This would be a good thread for reviewing those vids, I think.

I have them all... along with a bunch others. WWII in Color is good, as is WW 1 or 2 in High Def. Just watched War Stories w Oliver North cover the Normandy Landing to the Freeing of France. I've traveled France 4-5 times.... missed so much. The place is literally full of History. It would be a worthwhile project to actually plan a vacation? ..... or just ask the taxi drivers for the best pub with a dart board? Pros and Cons to all we do.
