For Serious WWII History Buffs
5 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Whatever the merits of Ms. Henie and Mr. Payne, this movie is a must for all World War II buffs. It is the only movie that I know of about the United States's invasion of Iceland. Hardly anyone knows that the United States occupied Iceland in July of 1941, five months before the attack on Pearl Harbor. The U. S. took over occupation from U. K. forces who had been there since 1940. The reason this occupation was that Iceland was a superb base to protect the North Atlantic sea lanes.

The invasion was part of conspiracy theorists's belief that Roosevelt and Churchill plotted to get the United States into the war.

Besides, Sonja may be the best ice skater of all time -- look up her Olympic record -- and is as cute as a button.
