The real event: On December 7th, 1941 the Japanese Navy did a sneak assault on Pearl Harbor and dealt a historic blow to the United States Navy. The real event: On March twenty fifth 1944, 76 P..W.s escaped from the German prison camp Stalag Luft III, causing the German military to provide a lot wanted troops for a massive manhunt for the escaped prisoners. Did you consider the one whose name I cannot bear in mind w/Jude Law as the Russian sniper & Ed Harris as his Nazi counterpart? I assume it showed the War from the Soviet p..v. reasonably well. The real occasion: As Russian and Allied forces closed in on Hitler and Berlin, Hitler moved to his bunker. On April 30th, Hitler killed himself and by May eighth all preventing had stopped and the conflict in Europe was over after 6 very long years. As each a movie and WW2 buff, I can see myself watching this marathon. I haven’t seen a number of of these, so it is a possibility. Great hub!
Hey ThoughtSandwiches….that may be very interesting that your mom was a huge fan of World War 2 motion pictures….my mom would go with my dad but I don’t think she was very comfortable about it. I saw Midway in the theater with them as nicely. Battle of the Bulge was a film I noticed numerous times on television as a child. I recognize the comment, the votes and the share. Hey nishlaverz…..thanks for the update….I just did a fast IMDB search on The Dambusters….and it is getting a 7.three rating which is pretty good….it appears like a movie that I will enjoy.
The movie: Midway (1976) which has an all-star cast, is a historic retelling of the Battle of Midway. The film stars Henry Fonda, Charlton Heston, Robert Mitchum, James Coburn and Glenn Ford. Midway was one of many greatest field office hits within the Nineteen Seventies. There are scenes originally of the film which are from Doolittle’s raid (see film #9 Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo). Outstanding! Wish my highschool history teacher offered this matter the best way you’ve: concise and meaningful. Congratulations in your award!
The film: Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo stars Spencer Tracy, Van Johnson, Robert Walker and a very younger Robert Mitchum. Tracy plays Colonel Jimmy Doolittle whose plan resulted in bombs landing in Tokyo so quickly after Pearl Harbor. Movie received Oscar® for finest particular results. Hey 34th Bomb Group….glad to hear that 12 ‘Clock excessive was pretty accurate. I know that a number of the administration techniques of the commanders…especially Colonel Frank Armstrong’s strategy….have been used as a enterprise mannequin after the war ended.
