This is sort of a shameless plug for a show on the History Channel, but it's actually really good!
I don't know if any of you have seen this show before, but this Green Beret, Terry Schappert goes to various historical spots and talks about famous battle, famous warriors throughout history. So far he's covered the Mayans, the Vikings, the Samurai, the Germanian barbarians' victory over the Roman Empire, the British Knights and chivalry. All with a pretty unique viewpoint.
The cool part is when Terry is not doing this show or out doing whatever his unit does, he's my brother's neighbor up in NY. I met him briefly this past Christmas, before the show aired, and I can tell you that he's not acting at all in the show. Real nice guy.Check it out here.
