5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Story in Loyalty., 20 Jan. 2015

This review is from: Army of Saviours [DVD] (DVD)
A film accurate to the times giving a picture of country life in Germany during WWII on a farm. We don't often think of those brave comrades who returned from the Great War, as the opening scene shows, and how these old friends sheltered their old Jewish comrades who fought so bravely side bt side and at times saved saved each others lives and ate out of the same mess tin. The film is a lesson in loyalty and comradeship despite Nazis oppression and trandscends all man made barriers. We never forget our old army buddies who served with us.. A great story.

This review is from: Fortress of War [DVD] (DVD)
This is a true story of the Brest Fortress and the bravery of the Russians on June 22nd 1941. I am not so keen on fictional war stories, but what a story and what a fight to the death. A gripping film.

Recommended reading for all who love Turner and want to learn his methods. As the EEC have banned the pigments he used the ones suggested are OK. However, I have genuine Vermillion and Chrome Yellow which were his favourites and give the best results. I think he used his worn oil hog brushes and squirrel brushes and have found these give the best results. I have some old 19th century watercolour manuals which speak of these early materials. The book is full of useful information of historical material and tips.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Artist WWI Machine Gunner, 19 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The book is in German and I do not know any German but such as I have picked up from war films which is nil. However I bought the book hoping to find Otto Dix's set of WWI lithographs and I was not disappointed. You need a strong stomache for Otto Dix. His drawings display the soul of a man who had experience horror and death in the trenches only to suffer defeat which left Germany open for Hitler whom Dix opposed. He later fled from Hitler's Germany to Switzerland to end his days painting idylic landscapes. This may show a healing of his soul after the trauma of all he passed through in WWI and Hitler's hatred of those who told the truth about life in post war Germany like George Grosz. European art tells the true story of the twentieth century in all the art movements. Dix was a great draughtsman, painter in all mediums with an urge to depict life as it was. This comes through in this book of his works.
