I am reliably informed that I need to see the new History Channel show Dogfights. According to History Channel:

The new series DOG FIGHTS recreates famous battles using state-of-the-art computer graphics. With up to 25 percent of the program consisting of animation, viewers will feel like they're in the battle, facing the enemy. First-hand accounts will drive the story. Rare archival footage and original shooting supplement the remarkable computer graphics.

Seems pretty cool.

Clips from the show are available on the History Channel website here.

Alternately, a Youtube search produced some videos as well. Check out the story of Medal of Honor winner and Guadalcanal hero James Swett:

or 'Zero Killer' Hamilton McWhorter:

This show has unseated BSG as my must see. Unfortunately $25 for an episode at History.Com made it a bit too steep for a Christmas gift.

Thanks for the Hat tip.
