This review is from: They Were Not Divided [DVD]  (DVD)
"They were not divided"
Released in 1950, this is a typical British view of the war from after the event. Not glamourising war, with no need to sell War Bonds it tells the true story of recruits to the Guards Armoured Division. For those of an age the remember National Service will appreciate the training period, with 'Trained Solder' who shows the tips on how to clean your kit etc. and the fearsome RSM who, if he can't find another infraction will tell the squaddie to get his hair cut (again!). The story leads on to Normandy and the difficult single road attack of Market Garden through to its tragic ending. No phony computer graphics, no false heroics, no overblown fiery explosions, just a solid depiction of a tankies life in WWII.
