Adore The Thin Red Line, think it's a masterpiece.

Especially with Terrence Malick returning from a 20 year hiatus from filmmaking upon its release.

From imdb

At thirteen years, German-born and raised Hardy Kruger became a member of the "Hitler Jugend" (Hitler Youth), as did all 13-year-old boys in Germany then. The purpose of the organization was to prepare the boys for military service. At age 15, Hardy made his film debut in a German picture (Young Eagles (1944)), but his acting career was interrupted when he was drafted into the German army in 1944 at age 16 and posted to an infantry regiment. Years later, Hardy related how he "hated that [Nazi] uniform." During the filming of A Bridge Too Far (1977) in which he portrayed a Nazi general, he wore a top-coat over his S.S. uniform between takes so as "not to remind myself of my childhood in Germany during W.W.II." It is said that during his war years, Hardy was captured and taken prisoner by U.S. forces but attempted to escape thrice, the third time successfully.

The second paragraph from Wiki is lies. Or you made it up. I'm constantly mugging you off.

You are the total fuck wit bellend. Far Clough. I've never lied on here.

Re: World War ll films
Swiss, you utter fucking Walter Mitty bellend:

From Wiki:

Hardy Krüger was born in Wedding, Berlin in 1928. His parents were ardent Nazis. "I was raised to love Hitler", he stated in a 2016 interview.[3] From 1941, he went to an elitist Adolf Hitler School at the Ordensburg Sonthofen. At age 15, Hardy made his film début in a German picture, The Young Eagles, but his acting career was interrupted when he was conscripted into the German Wehrmacht in 1944 at age 16.

In March 1945, Krüger was conscripted into the 38th SS Division Nibelungen where he was drawn into heavy fightings. The 16-year-old Krüger was ordered to eliminate a group of American soldiers. When he refused, he was sentenced to death for cowardice, but another SS officer stopped the order.[4] Krüger described this experience as his break with Nazism. He later served as a messenger for the SS, but he escaped and hid out in Tyrol until the end of the war.[5] He is today a member of the Amadeu Antonio Foundation and frequently speaks out against right-wing extremism and for democracy, also citing his own experiences.[6]

No he wasn't he was in the Hitler Youth. Not the same thing. But you're normally wrong like about the Norwegian Royal family.

Read The Band of Brothers book prior to watching it.great book excellent series.

Going off topic a bit If you havnt read Stalingrad written by Antony Beevor do mate.
It's pointless for me to comment on battles of war through the years as fortunately thanks to others it's something I've never had to endure.Its a brutal,difficult read but one I'd highly recommend.

Re: World War ll films
Kelly's Heroes and Escape to Victory for the not so serious element.

Thought Dunkirk was excellent and partial to a bit of Saving Private Ryan.

If I want reality and to think 'fuck that', the BoB boxset is the only thing I've seen that's worthy I think. Bastogne must have been serious brown trouser time.
