I haven't caught the name of it, but it's chock full of color footage from various fronts. It's not for the squeamish at all, but the film is amazing. I had no idea that there was that much color footage from the war.

Holy Suribachi. You should see the footage of the invasion of Iwo Jima. The number of ships coming in was awe-inspiring.

I can't find it.

Is it called "The Color of War?"

I think it was called "The Perilous (something)". It's over now, but wow - what footage. They had shots of Japanese planes getting shot down, a Russian attack on Germans in the East, action shots on Okinawa - all sorts of stuff.
