5.0 out of 5 stars At last the great film on DVD., 15 Sept. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Yangtse Incident [DVD] (DVD)
April 1949 the Modified Black Swan class sloop (later frigate) HMS Amethyst was on her way up the Yangtze river to relieve the guard ship HMS Consort at Nanking when she came under heavy fire from communist shore batteries, heavily damaged she ran aground near Rose island.

So starts one of, if not the best, post war navy movies. Having studied the whole incident I can say that over all this is a very good portrayal of the action. A lot of the minor action had to be left out due to the limited time frame for the movie and several characters have either been amalgamated or omitted. It's nice to see that Simon the ships cat is there but it's still a good movie and long over due on DVD

The quality of the DVD release is far superior to the older VHS edition, mine was so dark that the final battle between Amethyst and the fort at Woosung as to be unwatchable. The DVD is much better.

"Have rejoined the fleet off Woosung...God save the King."
