This week we continued the “Ken Burns: The War”. This show, in my opinion is more interesting then the “Ken Burns: Civil War”. Maybe because there is movement and it is more like a video rather then a slide show. It could also be that it is more reliant to the current times then the Civil War is. We learned this week about the the many people that died during the daily bombing raids and how the people at home were adapting to the war. There was also the many losses at the Monte Cassino on the Pacific Coats. The “War Towns” were booming with commerce and there was a lot of discrimination going on against blacks and Japanese and major fighting because of it.
It is very sad to see the number of people that died just during this period of time and the fact that this was only a fraction of the casualties
