Not a Complete Picture
23 October 2017 | by torontofredSee all my reviews

This documentary, and the brief synopsis offered here leaves the viewer/reader with the impression that military forces from the United States alone were involved.

As is often the case with American documentary/fictional cinematography, focus is placed almost entirely on the American element leaving the viewer to assume that no other country participated. This leads to embarrassing situations when historical fact is challenged. Therefore, keep in mind that this documentary is representative of the American forces, specifically, the units mentioned and the brave men who formed them.
