  1. Found this documentary made just 20 years after the events in the Ardennes Forest narrated by none other than Chet Huntley, the famous 60's news anchor, with commentary from the men who were there.

    Back when things were better than they are now (Golden Age), that series "The Big Picture" came on every Sunday afternoon covering different aspects of military history or current events.
    I would watch it with my Dad without fail.

    Sounds like this brought back good memories for you!

    I discovered the Big Picture series when it was shown on on Armed Forces Television Network while on a deployment to the Mideast a few years back. Perhaps not such a pleasant reminiscence as you had :), but I did enjoy the show nonetheless.

    Thanks, it definitely did. My dad was a WWII vet and as a kid I would ask him questions about all the stuff on the show.
    Another good WWII show from that era was "Victory at Sea" which we also watched together.
    If you have seen any of that show, you remember the big-ocean-wave scene at the beginning of each episode (with the dramatic theme music). My dad would inevitably (every week) comment that the ocean scene looked *just like* the way it did as he was on the ship heading for Europe during the War.
