Editorial Reviews

Part of the Army's Big Picture series, this DVD shows the World War II history of the Red Bull Division, the 34th, which was made up of National Guard units from Minnesota, Iowa, North Dakota and South Dakota. This section of the DVD is approximately 22 minutes. It includes scenes of the division training stateside and in Ireland. It shows the first beach landing for the battle for Tunis, called Operation Torch in the Battle for North Africa. Working with French and British troops, the 34th drives the Nazis out of the Kasserine Pass, and is shown in Battle for Hill 609. Then the division moves on to the landing at Salerno, Italy. The 34th is shown pushing across the Volturno River and into the mountains and toward the German winter line. Fighting around Cassino is shown, and the monastery is bombed. The division went on to the beach head at Anzio. Casualties are shown. Then the division is seen heading into Rome. Most units moved north, and the division is shown briefly at rest. The 100th Battalion, the Nissei unit, is shown receiving the Presidential Unit Citation from Gen. Clark. The division moves on to the Gothic Line in heavy winter weather. More fighting is shown in northern Italy in the Po Valley. Fourteen Medals of Honor went to members of the Red Bull Division, and an awards ceremony is shown. Part 2 of the DVD (about 5 minutes) looks at medals for heroism. The film footage is very good quality.

I showed this video to my Wife whose Dad had been with the 34th in WWII Italy as a draftee. Especially since her Dad had never talked about his time in Mr. Roosevelt's Army & she wanted to know more. To say that she was really shocked by what she saw in this film would be an understatement. (The Army having pulled no punches in this film to its credit & showed what the war back then was really like) As she had no idea what the old boy went thru during his tour of duty. I think that she has a lot more respect for him now. Pity that he is not around to enjoy it.
All in all I highly commend this film. Especially to all those folks who are always talking about why is it that we have the best military and never use it. They of course as always doing something else that is just as important when the deployments come up.
