Wonderful historical account

I enjoy anything related to US Military history, and as a USAF Veteran, especially anything related to the air war in WWII. However, I wasn't a fan of the narration. There was almost a comedic tone and tenor to his voice, and an odd emphasis in the delivery of lines. Hard to explain, but it was very off-putting for me.
