GUEST,Sledge Saving Private Ryan (52* d) RE: Saving Private Ryan 24 Dec 01


A superb piece of cinema that gets its point over all too well whatever the inspiration.

Nitpick mode on, The SS formation that they describe them as being, the 2nd SS Das Reich, did not appear on the invasion front for about a week, they were busy murdering French Civilians at Ouradour sur Glane and Tulle while en-route to the battle front. The German tiger formations were also slow in arriving in the battle area and when they did arrive were used against the British and Canadians for the first month or so. The first serious armour battles were also in the British Canadian area but against the Wermacht 21st Panzer division, nitpick mode off.

Cheers

Sledge (who IS trying to get out more)
