Ken Burns PBS The War

Recently PBS has been airing the Ken Burns documentary "The War." Which is about World War Two or II or WWII. The U.S. and the Allies fought the war in Europe and the Pacific against the fascist regimes of Nazi Germany, fascist Italy, and Imperial Japan. Our Allies being England (Britain, United Kingdom), Canada, India, New Zealand, The Philippines, Free French, and the Soviet Union. Let by Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR), Winston Churchill, and Joseph Stalin. Leading generals, Patton, Eisenhower, Montgomery, Marshall, and Bradley. The documentary overly pictures American deaths and errors in battle. We won the war, but how did we win if we made all these mistakes. American casualties were the lowest among the major combatants, yet this documentary dwells on American deaths by about 70% of the filming.
