| Excellent documentary, brilliantly executed
Having read and watched so many accounts of Pearl Harbour - both fiction and non-fiction - I was particularly impressed with this account. Yes, it exonerates Admiral Kimmel, who was unfairly and unjustly accused. Not only that, but when all the facts became known, he was not given the recognition and formal exoneration from the highest levels of the U.S. Government. To a Naval Officer such as Admiral Kimmel, to have his honour challenged, is a fate worse than death. I have great admiration for his grandson, and for the documentary makers, for their honest, heartfelt and brilliant telling of a story that is important to know. A nation that fails to understand its history is condemned to repeat it. The movie was riveting - with original footage that I had never seen before - and the performances in it that were letter-perfect. I would highly recommend this to anyone who cares about historical accuracy. It should be must-see in high schools and universities.
