HOLLYWOOD LOVES AN AMERICAN WAR FILM , UNLESS ITS REALISTIC . 7 OSCARS NOMINATED , ALL GIVEN TO THE RYAN BOYS .
on 5 April 2017
Another film encapsulating the great American war machine , this one of the very best , being more realistic .
Reviewers do a good job in their wide descriptions , but no one refers to THE LONGEST DAY .
The trouble is that the Yanks win everything , or die heroically .
War is a bloody , savage mess , this does show deterioration in attitude and loss of humanity .
Just waiting for a new version of Waterloo , with the Yanks showing up to take the credit .
