Speaking as a (very) old soldier, I have switched off more war films in exasperation than I care to remember. This however is the best. I ought to qualify that as I know little about tank warfare in the steppes of central Russia but when it comes to jungle warfare then this is the most realistic film you will ever see - long periods of boredom interspersed with short periods of absolute terror and mayhem. Forget about stereotypical rubbish like Full Metal Jacket - this is the real thing.
