I decided to watch the series again last week, following a sense of being short-changed by the film "Days of Glory" (another thread). BoB is probably the best WW2 dramatisation ever made, thanks to an inspiring true story, a big budget and an obsession with accuracy. Alas, my illusions have been shattered. I was sprawled on the sofa, beer in hand, ready to watch the second Bulge episode - the attack on Foy, coincidentally after reading about the recent death of the then-Lt Speirs (they probably broke the mould after making him). Early on there is a scene in which one soldier bends over, acting as a map table, and I watched enthralled as the battle plan for the occupation of the woodland and attack on Foy was briefed. Imagine my disappointment when the description of the "logging road leading to Foy" was accompanied by a finger moving down a contour line on the map rather than a logging road! Standards!
