I've always been a huge fan of documentaries; especially those surrounding the war. One I recently watched on satellite T.V from directstartv.com was about the fighter pilots in the Second World War. I found it amazing to watch as these fearless pilots would fly missions through even the most dangerous conditionsrisking their own lives and safety for the freedom of others.
Many of the fighter pilots who were charged with the seemingly impossible task of flying numerous missions were only in their early twenties. They needed to grow up quickly or they may not live too long. As I watched this program I thought about all the men and women who fought during this war; about all the lives that were lost, but the freedoms and new lives that were gained.
The photography was surprising clear and vivid even though some of the “raw footage” was taken over fifty years ago. This documentary was a running series that lasted a couple of nights and I looked forward to getting off work and coming home so I could watch all the excitement.
What I really enjoyed about this particular documentary was the fact the directors and producers took the time to interview many of the original fighter pilots who are still alive today. This is definitely a show worth watching again and again.
