    Well, the 1st think is they show patton as a 2star general. In july of 44, he was a lt.gen. (3star.) That tells me its hist. Facts leave alot to b desired. Better than some, worse than others. 1952 sidney poitier Is worth it by itself.

    My dad was a truck driver on the Red Ball. The church I attended included members who had flown with the Tuskegee Airmen, a Montford Point Marine and other members who were black veterans of World War II. I was five years old when the movie came out and my Dad, mother, and my dads three sisters went to see the film. We lived in Orlando, Fla, but had to go to Kississimme, Fla to see the film. We had to go around the side of the theater and up the outside stars to sit in the "Colored" seats. I was excited to see so many black faces on the screen. My dad told us all about what was going on when they would use real film footage of the war. Later in life I would ask my dad about the war and though he was reluctant to say a lot he told my brother and I some of his experiences. He was not proud of being in the army, but he was proud of his service, particularly of his experience overseas. He was treated better in England, France and Germany than he was in the US. Years later I was able to purchase a copy of the film, which I still have today, for me its like a family hierloom to passed on to the next generation. My dad was also at the Battle of the Bulge where he was temporairly made an infantryman.

    I am a 34 year vetran of the U.S. Army. This is one of the best movies I have ever seen that shows the strife of Soldiers in the War. It is a magnificant movie.
