Been watching. Good film if a tad cliche'd in places. Nice memories of p*ss ups in Arnhem. Making me look forwards to my week at Assen for the TT.
The only problem is that it makes us out to be a bunch of idiots. Robert Redford just said to a Brit Off "Do you always do things by the rules?" Hello Pot, this is kettle, message over...
Tot Ziens !
I took Dad to Arnhem back in 91 when he visited me at Bruggen. Went to a war cemetary outside the town & he spent a hour or so looking at the names there.I think he knew a few of the RAF guys there & he was very somber after leaving,paying his respects as we done as well.
A few years later when the cemetary was descicrated by mindless vandals,Dad was furious beyond words.
We saw the film in the cinema when it came out in the 70's & it's one of my favorite war films.Americanised but still great viewing.They dont make them like that anymore!!!
