Desdemona Ken Burns: The War (101* d) RE: Ken Burns: The War 24 Sep 07

I absolutely loved "The Civil War" (most of which I saw in the wee small hours of the morning while soothing a teething baby, now 16!), but I'm feeling conflicted about this one, for primarily personal reasons. At this point I'm not sure if I'll watch it or not; aside from my own feelings, the reviews have been extremely mixed, to say the least.

My father was a GI in WWII, and my mother was a British war bride, so I, too grew up steeped in this story...I heard about this series on NPR last spring, only a few weeks after my Dad had suddenly passed away. My first thought was, "Oh, Dad will *love* this!" before that stunned, slapped-in-the-face feeling hit me. So we'll see; it may be that I'll have to wait and see it at a later date.
