    • The best war movie ever!!!

      10
      Hi - I grew up in London during the war and always figured I knew a fair amount of its history - certainly in general terms and in several cases quite a bit of detail. At the age of ten or eleven, with the war barely over, I was already well-informed of the "Battle of the South Atlantic" and the Graf Spee episode down to the names of the major participants and the ships involved,even the subsequent history of one or two of the British destroyers that took part, to say nothing of many other major events. As the years went by my main interest and admiration centered round the Royal Air Force and its activities and in 1962 fulfilled a boy-hood dream of learning to fly.



      About 7-years ago I had the opportunity to visit Normandy. The visit was too casual, too uninformed, too unprepared and totally unsuccessful; I was determined to visit again and this year of 2015 the opportunity arose once more - this time with my step-son and his small intimate group of friends all of whom are regular participants in D-Day activities: at the age of 79 I had "discovered" Normandy and, as a spin-off, "Band of Brothers".



      The visit was an eye-opener and an overwhelming emotional, never-to-be-forgotten experience. I was entranced by what I learned during my 4-day visit and since coming home have delved ceaselessly into the history of those days and the men who took part.



      It goes without saying that Major Winters is a major focus of my attention and still occupies my thoughts and emotions to a significant degree. I learned that his family - understandably - is no longer prepared to accept letters and other forms of communications however sincerely intentioned. However my interest and admiration for him, and the many web-site presentations, interviews and material that I have seen both of him and of his comrades-in-arms compel me to make some attempt to register my thoughts in some recognized forum dedicated to his memory.



      I hope this letter will find some small recognition on your web pages as a sign of my deep respect for him and his service to the world community.

      Irrespective of the praises rightfully due to "Saving Private Ryan" there can be no comparison between the the theme music is an exceptionally scene- and mood-setting piece.



      (Significantly, I became only superficially aware of him during my visit and it was only on my return from France, as I delved into the sources, that I learned more fully of his achievements together with his comrades of "Easy" Company - and all that took part, consequently the website I created does not adequately express the full extent of my deep respect for him and the honour I know is due to him and his .



      Yours,

      Selwyn Rose

      I have never seen a war this real in movies or TV shows. Every detail has been shown as much as it deserves to...

      It is really hard for other war related pictures to compete with this one for showing reality.
    • Seriously incredible!

      I watched this with my husband, who is a big war history buff. This was a beautifully made mini-series that was terrifying and human and also funny. The directing was perfect and the acting was spot on. Nothing comes together better when you watch a full cast of extremely talented actors: Damian Lewis, Ron Livingston and Donnie Wahlberg. I enjoy WWII movies and television, but this was incredible!
    • The band of brothers is an amazing miniseries.

      The band of brothers is an amazing miniseries. I watched it on TV and then bought the DVDs and then bought the Blurays when they came out. The summary on the main page refers to Rescue me, not the Band of Brothers. This should be fixed.
