I was there, it was like that,
By A Customer
This review is from: Warriors [VHS]  (VHS Tape)
Serving 12 mnths in Bosnia myself with the UN as a soldier, I must truly say that watching this film brought me back. I watched in awe and it brought tears to my eyes to once again relive the months we spent there. The director manages to create the moods and feelings and frustrations that were so common for all of the soldiers serving with the UN. It also portrais the restlessness and feeling of unfinished buisiness that so many felt after returning home. This movie is truly one that most people who have former UN personell in their family or among friends should see. Maybe then they`ll understand. To the makers of this film: You have earned a soldiers respect.

Great review and respect for sharing your thoughts. War is often a dream for those who have not experienced the front lines. I have no dad and was brought up by my grandpa. His stories of WW2 have made me a life-long pacifist. I have maximum respect for those in our armed forces who voluntarily offer their lives but I have maximum disrespect for those who send these valiant souls to their deaths for political purposes. Sure, the Yugoslav war was horrendous and needed to be stopped, but as you say in your review it was left with "unfinished business". We can only speculate as to why.
