Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

Everyman's war

Everyman's War NEW TRAILER


my review is somehow difficult to write: the movies has it pros and contras

contras:
the budget, it seems that it was very tiny....
most Germans are Americans speaking a kind of Allo Allo german
the CGI (panzer IVs) is well.... awful.... luckily there isn't much CGI in the movie  congrats
even the weather and snow is CGI and it is SOOOOOO bad..........  Onbeslist

pros:
it is different than most other warmovies
it shows more than just shooting and heroes
the action never gets more important than the story (SPR for example)

would I buy it again? yes (I am a collector), but not above the 10€ for the Blu-Ray I bought now

As the seasoned infantry and tank units of the German 11th Panzer "Ghost" division move silently into position on the snow covered hills around Nennig Germany ,a battle weary GI and his unit stand ready to defend the small town, a key position in the Allied advance to win the war. Outgunned and outnumbered, S/ Sgt Don Smith struggles to find hope and courage against overwhelming odds in one of the decisive confrontations in the "Battle of the Bulge" during WWII. His squad of GI's of the 94th Infantry Division lay dug in on the ridge-line outside of town. No one in high command believed that German forces would attack in the sub zero temperatures and near blizzard conditions. As the pre-dawn attack comes, with communications down Sgt. Smith is left with no choice but to make his way through enemy fire, unarmed and wounded, into town and warn of the coming attack. Based on actual accounts "Everyman's War" explores the heroic events of this decorated veterans courage and the struggle between duty and desire. Between the prospect of the life and love, Dorine that waits at home and the harsh realities of war which marks the pivotal epoch in his life as he discovers that the loss of hope can be worse than the loss of life. One man's courage... One man's hope...Everyman's War
