    Nicely Documented DVD to Have for the Future of our Children

    America's Greatest Victories: Eisenhower on D-Day, Nimitz at Midway, Patton at the Breakdown from Normandy, Halsey at Leyte Gulf, MacArthur in the Philippines and Schwartzkopf at Desert Storm are but a few of the true, great, real, honest victorious memories this DVD documents. How will our children ever know these important details without this sort of preservation. Impressive compilation of our country's history. Nice job.
