Trying to get out from crazed UK captain
4 March 2013 | by (Seymour Tennessee) – See all my reviews

Saunders and his men must try to get out under a stubborn UK captain's command as one of the British soldiers got killed and they were all blaming him until Littlejohn told him to shut up for one of them.

The UK captain realizes that they won't make it. As they are running out of supplies and offers Saunders and his men to leave.

Despite also losing men on each side, Saunders decides to stay and help out the Brits despite their differences.

In the end they win over Germany but the Captain succumbs to his injuries and a boy looking for his sister's killer during it all ends up wanting to go home saddened.

The UK blame the USA for being impatient and overzealous while the USA blames the Brits for being way too cautious and careful.

In the end they needed teamwork to get the job done!
