When Trumpets Fade Reviews
Focusing on the little known Battle of the Hurtgen Forest (September 19 1944-Febuary 10 1945 making it the longest Battle in the history of the American Army and the longest on the Western Front), director John Irving focuses on Manning and his squad. Ron Eldrad gives a great performance as a soldier who desperatly wants to stay alive and leave the war behind, but who's very survival ensures that he is constently thrust into the forefront of the battle. Not the best war movie (basically made to cash in on its big brothers released the same year Saving Private Ryan and The Thin Red Line), but still features some good scenes and a great performance. If your into War movies check it out.
Very breathtaking and thrilling movie... how come I haven't heared about it earlier. Some to watch if you like WO2 warmovies. This one would suite pretty good within the Band of Brothers mini-series if you would ask me.
