Customer Review

on 20 October 2010
I saw this film on TV for the first time a few years ago and am delighted to now own it on DVD. It is a great, true story and all the more interesting for me as I had the privilege of knowing and working with Geoffrey Weston in Hong Kong during the 1970s. He was a wonderful, larger-than-life man with a keen sense of humour who excelled at chess and squash. He rarely, if ever, spoke about the Yangtse incident so this film, which according to other reviews is an accurate portrayal of what happened, provides an historic insight for me as to what took place in that far-flung corner of the world in 1949.

I would recommend this film to anyone who has enjoyed British war films made in the Fifties, or indeed anyone who can appreciate a spirit-lifting, true story of genuine British heroism.
