An under-rated classic
25 May 2013 | by (Torbay, UK) – See all my reviews

This under-rated drama has a classic quality all of its own. It gives a superb insight into the complexities of Churchill as a man and a leader. It also provides an intriguing peek at both military and political thinking on both sides of the Atlantic during the Second World War.

Casting can only be described as brilliant. Not only were the leading characters played superbly by established and fine actors but most had a physical resemblance to the real people they played.

It was released in the States on VHS a long time ago, but currently someone has posted it all on You Tube.

If you are interested in understanding the War from a different perspective, do watch it.
