Just a quick question. If I'm not mistaken, at the end of episode#3, it is told that Mr. Blithe never recovered totally his health and that he passed away in 1948.
But I think I saw one day a picture of his cross and it was written "1967" on it. But I don't remember where I saw it and so can't check. Can anybody clarify my confusion ?
Awww, how insane I seem...
All the best,

Dr. Ambrose and the production depended heavily upon the E Company network for news about the post-war lives of the men. And while the network was extremely good, it was not infallible.
Part of the fun of history is trying to sort through evidence to get the best picture possible. And then, new evidence emerges that forces a reevaluation. So, with Pvt. Blithe.

I agree... Some Vets just don't care to remember. It was their war and then they went home and made a life. However, once in awhile you get a vet who has a photographic memory and is a good story teller! They are true gems!
As I work on my book, I'm reminded everyday that history is a real detective game. Veteran recollections are not always the most reliable source. A good combination of veteran interviews and official documentation usually helps to clear up the picture a bit. There will always be a little fact here or there that escapes detection.

We all know Cpt Dale Dye went on to play Colonel Sink, is this another cameo?

Since you are in touch with the writers , is there any possibility of a directors cut that would address some of the shortcommings of the series?

I'll put in a plug if I can. Maybe, just maybe, if the DVD sales persuade the powers that be that a directors cut makes commercial sense, there's a chance. But I'm afraid that, as non-Hollywood as the production was in the first instance, we're knocking on a closed door.
Maybe after the CMOH campaign is won, a BOB revision campaign would make sense.
Thanks, Tony. y.o.s., Doug
