Violent and Intense Content:
There are a few people who are shot, but most of the violence is actually footage (in black and white) of the battlefield after the battle. There are, naturally, corpses on the battle field. None of it is graphic, but there are several scenes where it shows either dead or wounded soldiers.
One soldier smokes a pipe.
It’s nice in all of our revisionist society to find a few documentaries that are historically accurate. You’d think that a war like WWII, that we still have veterans from, couldn’t be revised too much. But that simply isn’t the case. This is one of those few accurate documentaries. Most of the stories are derived from the original veterans, their letters, and their sons. It’s always pleasant to come across some accurate, biblically minded documentaries.
Altogether this is a film I would definitely Recommend. This film is best suited to lads eight years and over, and parents will probably want to watch this with their children the first time for those younger than ten, because of the violence. I would especially recommend this film if you have any relatives, friends, or neighbors that are veterans. We can learn so much from them, and there are fewer every day. One day there won’t be any more.
