Two words: Watch It. I missed it when it first ran on HBO but caught it a few weeks ago on the History Channel. Absolutely amazing mini-series. I didn’t want it to end. So much so that I promptly went out and bought the book and the DVD set. I finished reading the book this morning. There are some incredible stories in the book, and the mini-series does a fabulous job of portraying them. The actors are superb and look very much like the men the portray, which is neat.
Read it. Watch it. Now.
