Amazing documentary.
15 January 2002 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

Walter Kronkite and Tom Brokaw narrate this amazing documentary about American WWII veterans who meet their German counterparts 55 years later in the forest battlefield where they once fought each other. As incredible as the two well-known figures are, they are almost overshadowed by the harrowing stories of the men who fought the war.

This is a film about war that manages to convey what the experience is truly like without gunfire and fireworks. The filmmakers strip down the experience, laying bare the men's stories of lives interrupted, dead friends, heroism, cowardice, and surreal moments of comedy - letting these stories speak for themselves.
