Yes, the documentary has been mentioned on here a few times, he really hit the gold standard with this series of films.

You can see them on YOUTUBE, it was on PBS

Hard to comprehend how it must have felt to be flown to a foreign country  and thrown in to battle.

Sounds good.

Read a book a few years ago by a British guy who got drafted in to the Army(Was made an American citizen years before). Cant remember the name of the book though, but it was a very good read.

I used to read a book a week when I lived in Thailand. It’s a lovely way to pass the time, I too need to get back iton my old ways

In my early offshore days a book was your only entertainment. Was easy to finish a good book in a day or two. 

Funny to hear guys complaining that their heading to a certain rig with poor wifi "Could be offline for a while heard this rig has shite wifi"

Just started watching it. Very informative, also for my Mrs who'd never been told this piece of history.

Many lives lost for nothing sadly.

But in those days the scare of communisme taking over the world was so irrational that it blinded many people.

Like everything at the end communisme died a natural death...

I remember at school, the reds under the bed witch hunts. McCarthy certainly stirred things up to a point where a few were executed.
