Man, some of you are a tough audience. We're only a couple hours into the first episode and had to take an intensity break. That southern belle's upset at Pearl Harbor, everything around Burns' telling of the attack, and the Bataan Death March actually brought on a couple tears.
I've been reading Dan Inouye for over 15 years and I never heard him tell his Pearl Harbor story. I'm impressed that Burns managed to drag it out of him.
