Description:

With the wealth of allusions to Pearl Harbor in the news this week, this miniseries from HBO focused on World War II is well-timed. Parts one and two of the ten-part Band of Brothers premiered this week, and viewers will find supplemental material here including veterans' stories, a timeline of events related to the war, details on drop zones and paratroopers' uniforms, explanations of the defensive strategies, and more. Flash movies allow viewers to see highlights from the war, pausing where they want more detail. Those who want to pursue their interest in topics further will find pointers to other sites in the Resource Room, which also features chat rooms and message boards. Note that we found the site's navigation not entirely intuitive and the load times quite long even with a high speed connection.
