I prefer books and movies that give me a chance to learn about the soldiers that fought for our country. The Medal of Honor stories gave me a very brief, but important look at those who fought for my freedom. The personal accounts are very well done. I believe all would like to hear the story of each medal of honor recipient.

None of the snazzy CGI that we've come to expect from excellent movies like "Saving Private Ryan", but great stories nonetheless.

"A Customer" reviewed this selection like it's historical fiction. It's not. This stuff really happened. "Saving Private Ryan" did not. If you want a great war movie then watch a Hollywood produced mega block buster for entertainment. If you want to learn something about real heroes, watch this.

I respect the men (and women) who fought for truth, justice and the American way, and gave thier lives. But this documentary is more suited to cable tv than a DVD release.
I admit it is often tear-jerking to hear the reminiscing of the old veterans and what they went through, but it gets a tad dull and boring. The same message of the futility of war can be found in Saving Private Ryan, which is more exciting as an added bonus.
I do NOT recommend this title, catch it on TV, save your pennies and buy some other DVD.
