"Only Old Men Are Going to Battle"


Image result for only old men are going to battle movie poster 

A brave "signing squadron" of Soviet fighter pilots live and love the best they can as they fight off the Nazis invasion into their Motherland.  Can these brave men survive the war or will their latest  concert be their last.  This is a great patriotic film seen through the eyes of those behind the Red Curtain.  I try to watch as much Eastern Bloc stuff that I can since it brings in an interesting perspective that most of the West has missed.  Give it a once over and see what you think.

Not far from any Western war flick,
Brian

"Anthropoid"


A team of Czech soldiers have infiltrated back into their homeland to do one thing, to assassinate the "Butcher of Prague."  Can they succeed in taking out the Nazis' 3rd in Command or will they fail their mission and their countrymen?  This is a great movie about the brave men and women who executed Operation: Anthropoid.  A definite must for any WWII buff and an all around great flick so give it a watch.

"Resistance"


A German recon unit is stranded in a remote area of Wales during a German advance into the UK.  Can the locals resist or will they become sympathetic with their invaders?  This is an interesting film that is more psychological then anything else.  It's well done and a good flick so give it a go.
