Guns at Batasi Reviews
This is not just a post war, "war" film, but a post Suez film. This is really all about Britain not facing up to end of Empire, Attenborough's RSM, showed great courage and military competence, and did stick to his principles- or at least strickt military procedure. In the end though he just couldn't cope with the new political reality. That's exactly where Britain was then, post Suez but pre-Aden. Indeed some would argue that this film still sums up Britain's view of its place in the world.
