If you have Netflix, streaming or DVD delivery I can without doubt recommend the series called WWII in HD. It is all color footage, with original color Kodak film and combat footage in ten episodes. From Darkness Falls to End Game.

That is some of the best footage I've ever seen as it is (in some places) narrated by the participants themselves, and by Gary Senise in other situations. And NOT colorized for effect in any way. Here is the story of how it was found...

It never ceases to amaze me how often I see clips from Fighting Lady in other movies or documentaries. It's a great film and a real testament to the people that fought for the US.

I downloaded this a while ago. Whenever I watch it, it never ceases to amaze me.

The OP's link works fine using Firefox, although it does take a good while to buffer, and is slow to load.

Use the link I posted in Post #3, download it free from Internet Archive and watch it later. No buffer to worry about, and no stopping every few seconds to continue loading.
