    Looks good!

    Anyone else like watching Battle 360 on History? It's following the Enterprise through WWII. Awesome!

    Did you know Enterprise the car rental company was founded by a former crew member?

    My son learned that on History Channel!

    Yes! The show Battle 360 is about the Enterprise so the rental car company is sponsoring it. The whole series so far has been "Brought to you in limited commercial interruption," by the company. They've even played some interviews with the guy who founded the company.

    The series is narrated, has interviews with men who were there during the particular battle the episode is about, has real camera and gun footage, and all the gaps are filled in with computer animation. It's really well done.

    That must be the show my son is watching then. He is 12, but is really interested in anything to do with WWII.

    I would love to take him of a tour of the European battlefields some day.
