Yeah I saw it...this is about the only channel I watch anymore.It seems like the regular history channel only shows modern marvels about the history of ink or paint these days :scratch:

A solid 20 minutes, bump!

Great, simply for the footage. Yes, pro-American, but it's a silent original capture most of the time, we the audience knows it, the camera man knows it (I hope!). No sneaky word trickery like "history" :D

...

Guadalcanal footage, here!

Starting from about 05 mins 07 seconds of Part 1, we clearly see a County class cruiser opening fire.
When I saw this... what do you think I thought about? Playing this god damn game of course!

Garghhh this game is going to be awesome!
