    "Dusty Faces"

    Submitted for your approval, a series of short films about German soldiers in World War II. Unless you speak German, select the subtitle tab abd you too, will "get up close and in the minds" of these foot soldiers.

    The Warsaw Concerto

    Submitted for your approval, an old piece of music that has transcended the World War II movie from which it came. Film buffs might remember "Dangerous Moonlight," but the powerful opening of the "Warsaw Concerto" thunders into the sky.

    The Eternal Zero (2013)

    http://moviesonline.mx/watch/gdVMqpGD-the-eternal-zero.html I came across trailers for this 2013 Japanese war drama, and this is the only link I've found for the film. It is doubly strange because it's dubbed into French with English subtitles (!). This is a tale of rediscovery by the current generation, who discover that their biological grandfather died in World War II. Interviewing the few surviving comrades, the grandson tries to reconcile the "coward" brand his grandfather bore in spite of his aerial exploits against the ever-more-powerful enemy. Note: The director has been criticized by both Right and Left wing commentators for either making an anti-war film or glorifying the World War II Japanese military. See what you think.;)

    The Railway Man (2013)

    I happened to "time shift" the FX movie, "Unbroken" to see what sort of a "True Story" it was. The bare bones of Olympic achievement at the 1936 Berlin Olympics, followed by survival in the South Pacific, to jump "from the frying pan into the fire" Hell in a Japanese P.O.W. camp was...dramatic. Presented for your approval, a similar tale of World War II, on the Thailand to Burma railway, glossed over by "Bridge on the River Kwai." (I saw it recommended in a thread discussing "Unbroken.") I've since concluded that "Unbroken" has similar issues for movie reviewers that keep "Tora! Tora! Tora!" replays restricted to Attack on Pearl Harbor anniversaries, while "Pearl Harbor" plays on and on. How much of this tale is true?

    British Ration Week

    Last week, while catching up on "The Great War" (World War I) with Indy Neidell, I followed a link to the "guns and ammo" video posts. (Is the British SMLE better than the German Mauser 98K?) Just to prove that even fans of the "Second Amendment" have other interests, I ran into this "behind the scenes" look at Great Britain's home front during World War II. I've seen "Foyle's War" and "Home Fires" Great Paxford, and "84 Charing Cross Road," far from the front lines. I'm aware that rationing in Great Britain didn't completely end until 1951, but the reality of "Welsh Rabbit" with rabbits shot on Lord Punkington's estate is sobering. See how you'd like to "go Vegetarian" in a big way as German bombs fell on London and the American Spam supply depended on Bletchley Park cracking the ENIGMA codes. (And you thought that "Russian Black Bread" was a digestive challenge!;)
  6. Submitted for your approval, a song for members of the armed forces stationed far from home. It's a few days past the anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack that thrust the United States into World War II, which was a battle between the Looters vs. the Conservators. Just a small reminder of what "Sacrifice" is about, that some forget and others know not the meaning.

    "The Best of Enemies" (1961)

    Part one of two parts, where British and Italian forces square up for a fight...and find they can't stand each other, or live without the other. The British "stiff upper lip" meets "the gesture"';) If you don't keep him on a leash, he's going to end up on tomorrow's menu!
