Wow, if you are a history buff and know about militaria and military equipment, this movie is a great one to watch.
The movie has an actual Tiger I tank, the last remaining operating one in the world. The equipment used by both sides looks quite authentic. As a combat vet I can attest that the depictions of combat scenes are quite accurate! I found myself ducking when I saw the tracer rounds on the big screen; the camera work is superior.
As a side note, the Sherman tanks depicted were in fact quite vulnerable to enemy fire and this is also depicted in the story line. We should remember this side note when we talk about equipping our military today and in the future.
In the end I was quite moved by this story and felt a profound sense of sorrow for those who endured this horrific war as well as my eternal gratitude to those who fought so bravely and defeated the Axis.
