I was thinking of starting a post WWII thread like this on MBT, that Aussie film would have made my list.

Read the book (in English) and liked it, did not know there was a film.

Kelly's Heroes (1970)

Hi.
Two Norwegian movies I like:
Operation Swallow: The Battle for Heavy Water (original title: Kampen om tungtvannet) is a Norwegian movie from 1948. Some of the commandos are playing themselves.

Shetlandsgjengen, from 1954, about the "Shetland bus" SOE-operations between Shetland and occupied Norway.

Halstein.

'Letters from Iwo Jima' (2006) Japanese side of the Iwo Jima battle. A better film, in my view, than 'Flags of our Fathers' (2006) although that is certainly worth a watch too.

'Ballad of a Soldier' (1959) Soviet film but, for once, not mainly propaganda...

'Storming Juno' (2010). Very good Canadian Docu-Drama about the Canadian Army on D-Day June 1944. You can find it on the net...

'Western Approaches' (1944) the thing about this film is all the 'actors' are not actors, but actually merchant marine, Royal Navy or air force, etc.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cT9-UquVvHE

The thing, to me, is that any and all, of them could have been my dads mates (mostly about 40-50 years old)) C. 1985. That was just how they all, without exception, really were.

I was a sailor for fun from in my late 20's. Later, when I gave up soldiering, I worked for the Torres Marine Pilots, in the Torres Strait on an Australian East Cost Prawn Trawler (89 days at sea first trip) and later on Whitsunday Sailboats. My ex wife's family were Royal Navy and my son is joining the Royal Navy...

This channel on YouTube has hours of great Royal Navy documentary film. Do subscribe...
