Ken Burns brings World War II to Luverne, MN
Luverne, Minnesota, will join Sacramento (CA), Mobile (AL), and Waterbury (CT), in the next Ken Burns documentary entitled "The War," about life during World War II. In looking for a small, Midwestern town, producer Lynn Novick said they came across Clinton Aanenson, a Luverne native who served as a fighter pilot in Europe during the war. "He has an extraordinary story to tell, and he tells it very well," Novick said. The series is slated to air in 2007.
