It's amazing. On par with the pacific in my opinion, not saying its better but it's not worse.
Plus it's short (I think 7 hour long episodes). So it should be watched before you get caught up in something more time consuming like Sopranos.
I just finished watching this last night. I came away pretty impressed. I'd love to know how factually accurate Evans account of this was. I'm gonna assume its pretty close.
I think they did a good job of showing the USMC suffers from a lot of the same problems as most workplaces; ie unqualified people running the show, too much CYA, etc. But I thought they did a great job of showing some damn good soldiers, like the LT and Iceman.
I have to say, the last interview between Godfather and Evan completely caught me off guard. Changed my entire opinion of Godfather. Leadership can be sneaky.
