The addition of the real men of Easy Company recalling their experiences, their fears, their grief made it even more compelling.
But that's just me.... ; )
Don't get me wrong, I really respect the show and think it's an incredible and a beautifully authentic effort (and if I decide I don't like the series by the time I'm done, I know I'm in the minority), but I am the complete opposite of you in general when it comes to my interest in war as a topic. The topic is like kryptonite for me, and I tend to like everything from the genre several notches less than most people do.
Distaste aside, it's still the best war-focused thing I've ever seen.
