Confederate:
A Mark Felton production.

Imagine being a German pilot in June of 1944. Trying your best to protect your homeland from the inevitable.

Lord of the Dance:
Am I glad they lost? Absolutely. But I would be lying if I said that I don't have great respect for those pilots in their courage to fight, despite the high risk of death. Taking friendly fire on the way out is yet another example of the high cost of war.

German battle tactics especially tank battles are taught at West Point. The American military adopted many of them.

Last two years the Germans were superior at turning what looked like a defeat into a win or draw and fight again.

I don’t pay attention to the propaganda of the victors too much. I like to read and watch vids from the German POV.

As a Veteran it’s easy to admire their early successes based on discipline and blitzkrieg tactics. Early on in the war one German was killing up to 10 enemy soldiers. Too bad Hitler was an asshole because the German people decidedly were not. Or as Marge Schott said, he was okay in the beginning.  :laugh:

I’ve already seen it, thank you. A great movie indeed.

For those who like to read “The Forgotten Soldier” by Guy Sajer is excellent but very sobering.
