Summary
By September 1944, the Allies seemed to be moving steadily toward victory in Europe. General Dwight Eisenhower’s chief of staff tells the press, “This war is over.” In episode 5, FUBAR, Ken Burns explores the coming months when a generation of young men will learn a lesson as old as war itself - generals make plans, plans go wrong, and soldiers die. American soldiers are ordered into some of Germany’s most forbidding terrain. And in the Pacific, General Douglas MacArthur is poised to retake the Philippines at Leyte, and although the nearby island of Peleliu holds little tactical value, the Marines are ordered to take it anyway. It is a battle expected to last four days but drags on for over two months. At home, Americans cheer the newsreels of General MacArthur “returning,” but soon it becomes painfully clear that the war will not end before winter
