Had some great dialog on propaganda vs truth. Is not the distribution of holocaust photos during WWII similar to right to life efforts today? Endng seemed depressing but probably representative of the futility of war. Raises good ethical questions about humane limits of persuasion. US prison camps did a lot better than German concentration camps but still had some abuses. A particular scene where a prisoner feigned illness but was treated anyway probably would have never happened in a German concentration camp. Amazing how much propaganda was fed to (and believed by) the German and Italian armies. The setting in TX was very realistic as I can verify from my time stationed in San Antonio when I was in the military. A "must see" movie.
