The story of the men who fought in the Huertgen Forest.
13 August 2008 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

Very good documentary hosted by both Tom Brokaw and Walter Cronkite about the coming together of soldiers, both American and German who fought against each other in the Huertgen Forest. Watching the men try to catch up after 50 years and try to explain and make sense of what happened is both touching and sad. The fighting was bad that one soldier could never have a Christmas tree because the smell of the tree reminded him of the battle. Its a trip. Its also one of the rare films that have sprung up in the last ten years or so where soldiers play witness, that doesn't seem clichéd. Its not just talking heads. Somehow it manages to be more. Worth a look see.
