Down to Earth- Return of the 507th. (PBS) Documentary. 56
minutes. Not rated. When D-Day is discussed, we normally see and hear
about those brave men who stormed the beaches of
on June 6, 1944. This documentary shines the light on the men who
parachuted behind enemy lines and fought some of the largest and most
important battles of World War II. Using a combination of actual WW2
footage, historical accounts, and interviews with some of the men who made
up the regiment, Down to Earth offers gallant, yet terrifying, look at the 507th
and their place in history.
not knowing all that much about the 507th, I was truly amazed
and fascinated at what these guys accomplished during the WW2. As time
passes, more and more WW2 soldiers are dieing and along with them are
their first hand accounts and experiences of what they did and saw.
Documenting this type of history is so important and we must never forget
what they did for us. Watch this DVD and appreciate what you learn, then
tip your cap to any veteran you may see. – Denis Sheehan
