    A classic film set in the Kuban Bridgehead
    The gates of hell were opened and we accepted the invitation to enter" 26/880 Lance Sgt, Edward Dyke. 26th Bn Northumberland Fusiliers , ( 3rd Tyneside Irish )

    1st July 1916

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    House Carles at the Battle of Hastings

    I hope you see it soon ,fantastc action and a sound anti war sentiment running thru it.zol the ss guy looked very sneaky but the director didnt make enough of his character.the t34 crashing into the factory after the german unit i think wasone of the most damatic scenes ever/shades of stalingrad battle,ur in for a treat ,let us all know what you thought of it.

    You guys have got me excited to see it. I'm gonna find it one way or another and watch it this weekend. I will let you know Vegas. Thanks, for the location too Paul. I'm so history minded I always wonder about the specific details of books and movies. It makes it much more satisfying to know.

    Thanks,
    Jay

    Awesome link Ade,thanks, looks like a quality made movie. The T-34 doesn't look like some cheap mock-up like they do in most war movies. It's killing me because I'm at work now wanting to watch this darn movie. I'm kinda embarassed I haven't seen it because the clip you sent Ade, leads me to believe it's probably a cult classic for military collectors.

    Hi Jay, you said it! A total cult classic! At our Living History shows we play a game around the camp fire where you have to say a line from the film and the next man has to reply with the following line. We all know it off by heart.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I think it was made in a decade where there was still plenty of authentic uniforms and german helmets,and im sure much of the equipment was genuine ,down to the t34s.ade (and von clausowitz said)
