    I never want to get any messages that were holding our position. We arent holding anything. We'll let the Hun do that! We are going to hold him by the nose and kick him in the a.. ..... We're going to grab him by the nose and we're going to go through him like crap through goose!

    (May not exactly ver batim, but this scene was terrific.). I wish the central character had lived into old age. What stories he could have told.

    Yeah Hitler gets all the press, but a couple of our allies, Stalin and Mao, went on to commit larger genocides.

    Makes you wonder what could have been.

    So what's everyone's favorite ww2 movie? I go for realism a bit more. The Pacific, Band of brothers, Das Boot that kind of thing.

    Memphis Bell was good as well. My Grandfather was a Mechanic (top turret gunner) on a B-24 named the Fairy Bell.

    I'm always going to be partial to the Air Force lol. When I worked in the nursing home I cared for a B29 tail gunner and a Canadian P51 pilot. Of our 380 thousand done odd kia 100 thousand of them were airmen. I loved the tv series 12 o clock High. It was the very first show we watched the night pops brought home or first tv.

    My favorites was Hogan's Heros and McHale's Navy.

    Wasn't there also a movie made about PT-109?

    I have a vague recollection of one, I think it was about Kennedy. I'll see if I can find the name of it.

    As far as good war movies, Das Boot has a very compelling story and is expertly done. The Enemy Below with Robert Mitchum is very good also. There are so many good ones it is hard to pick one.

  18. a previous post mentioned the 12 O'clock High tv show. I absolutely love the movie starring Gregory Peck. ( absolutely my favorite actor of all time). I vaguely remember the TV show but the movie is top notch.

    Aside from that I could watch Combat all day long.

    Sorry I have no quotes to offer
