Mine are on VHS as well. Most of my movie collection is still on VHS. I've thought about getting one of those machines to transfer my VHS movies onto DVD.

Over the years my kids have given me the DVD series "The Pacific", "Band of Brothers", both great depictions of the wars. Yet, nothing has been produced to really portray the North Africa and Sicily/Italian campaigns as far as good or new movies go.

The Italian campaign, which essentially did not end until the war in Europe did, has been given short shrift in the media and by Hollywood.

Somewhere around in my collection I have the old "Victory at Sea" collection on DVD. Covered the war in the Atlantic, the Pacific & he Med. Great series but a lot of the narration got swallowed up by that musical score.

I have the Victory At Sea on two tape cassettes. "Under the Southern Cross" is just one of the great musical scores woven into the film.
