Finally caught up. Was rather busy these last few weeks.
Overall, I did like the series and appreciated what the production was trying to convey, but the series did lack the storyline and character development that made BoB so terrific. Stlll, as a platform for demonstrating just how horrible a war can become, they certainly succeeded at that. You can see in the brutality and the dedication of the Japanese soldiers a preview of the Korean and Viet-Nam wars that will ensue in a short span of only 30 years following WWII, with the Korean war ending in a tie, and the Viet-Nam war ending in a defeat for the United States.
And now the United States is about to lose the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, with the possibility of entering into a potentially losing conflict with Iran and Pakistan.
So much for the "super" power.
