Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Caught this on TV last week, It's a pretty pish film but I couldn't help thinking about how Ironic it is in the current geo political climate.

    Massive military invasion of a country inspires local youths to sacrifice their lives to defeat the heavily armed invader. Remind you of anywhere sandy perhaps?
  2. It's an awful film just because it was so corny, implausible, and absurd. Cuban and Soviet paratrooper's invading the US. Yeah, okay.

    Ironically, the film is basically an inversion of the Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union.
  3. I'm pretty sure the yanks had an Op Red Dawn as part of OIF and Sadam's capture.

  4. Yeah.
