Valour and The Horror - Savage Christmas
15 May 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I know one of the co-stars Bob Clayton personally. He has spoken to my History students many times over the years. To state that this is nothing more than a "Titanic-like" documentary is ludicrous. There is no doubt that the Canadian government sent just under 2,000 poorly-trained Canadians to Hong Kong to bolster a garrison of 10,000 British Commonwealth troops. There is also no doubt that they would have a very difficult time if 50,000 battle-trained Japanese soldiers attacked. To state otherwise is to shame the memory of over 500 brave Canadians who died in the battle or in Japanese POW camps. The next time that you criticize something, please take the time to learn more about it.
