Basic Story: Follows the nine day assault on Brest Fortress by the Nazis in June 1941.

Fan Thoughts: The story is told through the eyes of a child in the army band, who witnesses all nine days of the attack and ultimately escapes to tell the story of what happened.  It starts out well, but drags through the second half by getting bogged down in the prolonged fighting.  It ties up at the end quickly and neatly after moving so slowly.  The film quality is good and the action sequences are well done, just needs a bit of a trim around the middle to keep it engaging the whole time.  Overall its not bad to have on in the background!

Warnings: typical war movie violence, implied rape

Explosions and gunshots had already started going off by the time the Jeep caught up with the tanks. As she scrambled from the jeep with the other three, mind racing, focused only on the threat before her, she heard calls for a medic. It surprised her not to see Gene rushing around. Dick, Harry, and Nixon started getting troops in order.

Spina and Mampre came into view. One helped a limping soldier, the other dragged a body. Alice rushed to them, past the tanks. Her sniper rifle was no use at the moment. Before long she reached the two medics, but realized it was actually three. Gene Roe limped with Spina’s help.

“Give him to me!” Alice ordered, grabbing the taller Eugene Roe. He didn’t protest, and neither did Spina, so soon enough she had the head medic at her side. “Damnit Gene.”

The U.S.A. did not bomb Nagasaki until August 9, 1945 

Nagasaki will look like a flaming rum omelette once we concentrate our attention on it.

“The Age of Hiroshima is a unique and innovative collection of original articles that together brilliantly make the point that the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki created a new international order with new dangers and new ways of thinking. There is no better text to help students understand the profound influence of nuclear weapons on the global environment. It should be required reading in every history and political science curriculum.”

Qu'aurait dit l'enfant que j'étais, de cet adulte que je deviens ?

“Il se sentait dispersé, perdu dans un néant aussi noir que ses songes. Et son cœur… Il se tenait au creux de sa poitrine, vide et brisé. Le désespoir à son paroxysme, sa seule issue se dessinait sous ses yeux. Son point final.“
