WW2 from Space video

Cheesy name but awesome information.

World War II From Space - YouTube

Apparently, a lot of the 'new' technology the US had came from Britain.

Highly recommended viewing for history buffs!

I see the vid starts Dec 7th 1941. I'd have hope for better from the History Channel.

Because people in this country have no understanding of most of the war.

The closest we got was the Ardenne Offensive by some tired, under equipped and supported German units. Compared to say Kursk? Keiv?

I remember when the History Channel used to do history. Now they hunt ghosts and shote. Ghost hunters probably aren't good at actual research to get names and dates right.
