The War Lover [DVD] [2003]
The War Lover [DVD] [2003]
Dvd ~ Steve McQueen
Price: 4.95

4.0 out of 5 stars great combat film, 3 Sep 2014
This review is from: The War Lover [DVD] [2003] (DVD)
This is a very good film for those interested in the 8th USAAF and its mission in England in WW2 - daylight bombing raids over Occupied Europe. There is some excellent footage of B17s, some good combat and mission portrayals, and the characters are well drawn. The only drawback is the romance part of the film; rather stiff and somewhat dated in appearance, but then again, overall, it is worth recalling that this film was made 50 years ago. I would also recommend the novel of the same title.

3.0 out of 5 stars There are better books focussing on the events of that week, 20 July 2014
OK, but that's as far as it goes. There are better books focussing on the events of that week, eg Courage Above The Clouds by Paul Allonby, on a so-called diversionary raid to Denmark....

An excellent study being Professor Wood which blends the coolness of an academic's eye with the sorrow of the death of his brother in the US 8th Army Air Force in World War Two. Very good, indeed.
