    While this show tries to get the history right, the writers still have trouble redacting modern language from the scripts. In this episode, for instance, the term "redact" was use to describe military censorship of mail, a term that wasn't popularized to describe this process until the 21st century. In 1943, they would have still been using the term "censor" to describe blacking out parts of a letter, and the person doing the "censoring" would have been called a "censor" as well. Otherwise, it's a great show, with some excellent characters, and the pervasive atmosphere of government secrecy that it all plays out against might still be considered relevant today.moreless
