Customer Review

on 21 November 2007
I was pleased to say Flages Of Our Fathers wasen't gung ho,it showed what a dirty business war is.To see people you have come to know get killed in battle is a terrible shock.The American Marines were fighting a determined and ferocious enemy in the Japanses.Iwo Jima was part of their home land and they were going to defend it and keep it to the last man,they were entrenched and prepaired for the invading Americans . As the Americans tried to gain a foothold on the island they were cut down by the concealed Japanese,the loss of life and the maiming was terrible. When the film showed the four flag raisers come home and speak to the American public to encourage them to by war bonds to finance the war,they were out of their depth because they never at any time considered themselves,fund raisers or heroes.The film conveyed the fact that they were ordinary Americans fighting for their country. The real heroes were dead in body bags they had laid down their human lives. The film conveyed that there is nothing glamerous in war,war is a dirty business.Men will always fight in wars because they are told'they are told. ''you are fighting for your country'' The supreme sacrifice is always paid.Soldiers human lives.
