Watching "The War" on PBS
Posted by Diane
In case you missed the teasers: The War
, a Ken Burns series airing this week and next on PBS, is definitely worth scheduling your evenings around.
Through interviews with more than 40 men and women, photos and footage from the era, the series shows how World War II impacted the lives of people from four towns: Mobile, Ala.; Sacramento, Calif.; Waterbury, Conn.; and Luverne, Minn.
I saw the first two parts last night. The descriptions of soldiers’ experiences in battle are powerful; so are the memories of people at home.
The series is airing in seven episodes
; check your tv listings or pbs.org for broadcast schedules
. You can read more, meet the witnesses
; and explore photos, letters and other source material
