If you have a history buff on your shopping list this year here’s a great gift idea. The War – A Film By Ken Burns and Lynn Novick is currently only $34.49 (reg. $99.99) and ships for free with Prime or Super Saver shipping. This is a 6-disc set of the popular PBS documentary. I remember watching this when it was aired on TV and it really was gripping.
Creating epic documentaries about war is nothing new for Ken Burns, nor is the subject of the Second World War, which never ceases to be a popular subject of films and TV shows. Yet with The War, Burns has definitely succeeded in breaking new ground, exploring in depth the effect of the war on common Americans, and not just the soldiers of The Greatest Generation that fought it. As the narration says at the beginning, “The war affected people in every house, on every street in every town in America.”
